Gooey Middle Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft, chewy, irresistible chocolate chip cookies, with a surprise gooey center!

vegan chocolate chip cookies

How do you make homemade chocolate chip cookies even better than they already are?

Some might say it can’t be done, but adding one secret ingredient to the center of each chocolate chip cookie before baking will turn ordinary chocolate chip cookies into something extraordinary.

Just look at the incredible gooey centers!

You wish you had some right now, don’t you?

almond paste cookie

These cookies can be all yours in under an hour – all you need is a few basic chocolate chip cookie ingredients and that one special ingredient for the centers:

The secret is that, right before baking, you open up each cookie dough ball and press a ball of Odense Almond Paste into the center before rolling it back up and baking in the oven. The result is that they will look like your average chocolate chip cookies on the outside… but take one bite, and you are greeted with a surprise gooey almond filling that compliments the melty chocolate and soft cookie so well that these might just become your newest favorite chocolate chip cookies!

Using actual almond paste instead of just almond extract in recipes yields results with a wonderfully rich flavor and soft texture. In the past, I’d only ever used almond paste for traditional Italian Pignoli Cookies at Christmastime, but the paste is good for recipes all year round, not just during the holidays. Use it anywhere you want that classic marzipan or almond paste flavor– in cakes, bars, cookies, muffins, or mixed with melted chocolate and then re-hardened for the most amazing chocolates, reminiscent to those famous Ritter chocolate marzipan bars.

You can find Odense almond paste in the baking section of most mainstream supermarket chains nationwide, as well as at Whole Foods, gourmet markets, and even at Walmart or Target.

Gooey Middle Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time: 10m
Yield: 22-24 cookies
Print This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]


  • 2 cups spelt, white, or oat flour
  • 1 cup unrefined sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup veg or melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pure almond extract (can be omitted)
  • 1 package Odense Almond Paste (7oz)


Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine first five ingredients in a mixing bowl, then stir in all remaining ingredients except almond paste to form a dough. Only if needed, add no more than 2 tbsp extra milk of choice – I needed just 1 tbsp extra. It will be dry at first, so keep stirring until a cookie-dough texture is reached. Roll into balls. Then roll the almond paste into balls as well—one ball per cookie. Cut cookie ball in half with a knife, smush a ball of almond paste in the middle, then roll the cookie ball back up. (Note: If your dough is too soft to roll for some reason, refrigerate or freeze until it is firm enough to roll into balls.) Place cookie balls on a greased baking tray, and press down if flatter cookies are desired. Bake 10 minutes – they will look underdone when they come out of the oven, which is what you want. Let them sit 10 minutes, during which time they firm up.

  5. Lauren says

    I’m obsessed with treats made with almond paste! I would of course use the almond paste to try these cookies, but I would also have to make pignoli cookies, even though it’s not the holidays, because they are one of my top favorite cookies.

  6. Jessica says

    Woah. I think I need to make these chocolate chip cookies today.
    Grocery shopping after work today so if they have the almond paste, then I’ll consider it meant to be. 🙂

  7. Melissa says

    YUM! I would love to make these cookies. Or another almond cookie because I LOVE almond so much. Perhaps pignoli cookies – or a cherry almond cookie or cake? I hope to try it out if I win!

  8. Lauren S. says

    These look amazing! I adore anything almond. I would definitely be using the almond paste to try this recipe! ?

  9. Lauren says

    I would use the almond paste to these cookies – they sound magical! I would also use the almond paste to make pignoli cookies – I am Italian after all!!

  10. michele says

    Yum!! I love almond paste. Always looking for ways to use it more. This is brilliant. Combining 2 of my favorites! Thanks Katie!

  11. Kaitlyn says

    I would love this try the almond paste in this cookie recipe! I have also seen some ideas for incorporating it into homemade ice creams for a nice nutty flavor as well.

  12. Melissa says

    I would use the almond paste to make these cookies, because they look *so good*! There’s always room for cookies 🙂

  13. Victoria says

    The prospect of making chocolate with this sounds too good to pass up! I’ve already put it on my shopping list for this week!

  14. Martha Villagomez says

    These cookies have me intrigued! Would love to test this almond paste out! I bet some smeared on dates and apples would be a wonderful snack!

  15. Meredith says

    These look delicious! I’d certainly start with making these, though almond paste chocolates also sound lovely.

  16. Melanie says

    I would try the almond paste in pretty much everything I make — cookies, protein shakes, oatmeal…I imagine it adds a lot to any recipe!

  17. Ruth-Ann says

    I have never worked with almond paste but I would love to try these and other cookies (e.g. pignoli . May even try my hand at muffins. Would love some otherwise healthy recipes if I’m going to use almond paste!

  18. Katy says

    Definitely these cookies!! I also love the little almond paste seasonal flowers and animals they mold in other countries to decorate cakes. I’ve always wanted to try making them!

  19. Leslie Paquette says

    These look delicious!! I love almond flavored desserts. I would definitely make this recipe if I won’t the almond paste.

  20. Sandra says

    Yum I would use it in these cookies or in one of the pies on their website. I think I’ve seen that at the store but never thought about buying it before. I will have to check it out the next time I’m at Target.

  21. Jess says

    I would love to try these cookies! Gooey centers are the best part of eating cookies. I love the flavor of almond extract, so I’m excited to see if almond paste is similar!

  22. Carissa says

    I made almond cloud cookies using almond paste last year and totally forgot about using it since then! They were delicious, though, and these chocolate chip cookies look amazing, too! I’d make both!

  23. Terri says

    These look amazing and I will be making this for our Easter dessert! I may also use the almond paste as a filling for the cake I was going to make from your cookbook! I can see so many reasons to use almond paste! Oh, what about putting the almond paste in small ice cube trays, freeze, pop out and dip in chocolate or drizzle chocolate on them! Thank you for all of your amazing recipes and Ideas Katie! You are the best!

  24. Lauren Ann Read Koslow says

    I love marzipan and typically get it in the form of Ritter Sport marzipan chocolate (vegan). I’ll bet I’d be making homemade versions of chocolate-covered almond paste were I to get my hands on this product.

  25. faith says

    I love almond paste, especially in a Dutch tarte that I make, but this cookie is going to be the next thing I try with it!

  26. Stephanie Nelson says

    I love to use almond paste and vanilla paste because they add a richer flavor to whatever you’re making. The recipes they have on their site look great. I never heard of this brand before. If I won the almond paste I would probably make some sort of almond danish or pastry. Something with a rich flavor.

  27. Christine Milway says

    I want to make these chocolate chip cookies. Our family has had a love affair with almond paste (guilty secret – by the spoonful) we ‘ve used it just dipped in chocolate, as an undercoating between fruitcake and vanilla butter icing, a centre in a loaf of breakfast bread and bought those lovely shaped fruits/animals/flowers made out of almond paste that are very popular in Europe, to name a few options.

  28. Amy says

    I’ll definitely have to try this first!! I love soft cookies especially cookie cakes! Second I would go for either a brownie, protein ball, or cake pop!

  29. Kathryn Dokoupil says

    Almond Paste, cocoa powder & sweetened condensed milk (just enough to make a dippable sauce), for pretzels, toast, fresh fruit slices.

  30. Rachel says

    I would love to try this cookie recipe! I think the almond paste would be great stuffed inside a chocolate muffin too.

  31. Victoria says

    YUM! I love chewy chocolate chip cookies…..I can’t wait to try the Gooey Middle Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe–even better would be to win the contest and have all that great Almond Paste to try other new recipes! I think it would also be good tucked into your Black Bean Brownies recipe…..I may try that!

  32. Monica Grose says

    Oh, these cookies sound amazing! I love almond paste and never thought of using it in this way. I definitely will try this recipe! Thanks for another hit, Katie!

  33. Ivy says

    I love anything with almond extract–and absolutely chewy gooey cookies, so I think I’ll make these! Thanks, Katie!

  34. Valeria Graves says

    I would use the almond paste to make these cookies!!! They look so yummy! I’ve never used almond paste before so this will be great to try.

  35. Safina says

    I would use almond paste for pignoli. I make them a lot, especially around holidays and the fall and winter. Before I have even made my own almond paste; it is so easy and delicious!

  36. Samantha says

    Can you use it just as a spread like butter? Because then I’d put it in the center of a fresh baked muffin!

  37. Kristen Tyson says

    My kids and I would use the almond paste to make a healthy chocolate chip and almond ice cream instead of vanilla bean, or use the paste as a filling in your donut recipe.

  38. Tonya says

    Yum! Gooey almondy goodness, making these tonight! I’d use the paste for Italian rainbow cookies, or a muffin streusel topping, or cupcake filling… So many options!

  39. Melanie says

    These look good!! I have not heard of almond paste before, so I would probably start by making these cookies and then maybe incorporate it into an energy bite recipe. Either someone else’s recipe or my made up version of one.

  40. Sonya J says

    I would definitely try making these cookies, maybe mix the almond paste with cocoa powder to make it a chocolatey center! I also make these little almond butter energy balls, I would like to try to make those with the almond paste.

  41. Cindy says

    so interested in this product, ive never seen it before and want to try it out. i will look at the store, thanks. i want to make chocolate cake.

  42. Karen McKinney says

    These cookies look so incredible. I love the dark chocolate-marzipan bars from Ritter, too! I will use the Odense almond paste for my only favorite cookie that isn’t chocolate – Almond Cloud Cookies. The original recipe came from King Arthur Flour, but I use Splenda for baking (half the amount of sugar) and orange oil for the bitter almond oil it calls for. The chewiest, most almond treat I ever ate. Almond paste is also great for an almond truffle dipped in dark chocolate.

  43. Amanda says

    Ooh gooey cookies are the best! I’ve never heard of almond paste. I’d be so interested in learning what all it can do, but I’d definitely start with these 🙂

  44. Maddie says

    Hi Katie! These look fantastic. I love marzipan and am always looking for new ways to use it. I do have a question though. One of my siblings has developed an allergy to gluten flour. Do you think a gluten free alternative, such as Bob’s or Pamela’s, would work here? Should I add any xanthan gum in addition do you think?

    • Jason Sanford says

      These can be gluten free if you use oat flour. There are some brands that sell “certified gf” oat flour. If you can’t find it and need it to be certified gf (oat flour is gluten free always, but some brands use the same processing equipment as wheat products) then you can take oats and blend them to achieve a fine “flour” and use that as your oat flour.

  45. Sarah Elizabeth says

    Oh my goodness… I have not heard of almond paste but this looks to die for! I would use it to make THIS exact recipe!!! In love with this.

  46. Debra Stephens says

    I adore almond paste and I would like to try it in cupcakes or mini-tarts. I have a bon bon recipe using almond paste that’s awesome… I need to make them again. Looking forward to trying these cookies!

  47. Natasha says

    I love your cookie recipes, and this one looks really delicious. If I had almond paste, i would experiment with it to create a unique almond paste cheesecake, or even fudge! 😉

  48. Nina says

    I bought the almond paste and will make these tonight. I love almond and chocolate together. Thanks for the great idea.

  49. Annette says

    I used to get Almond Croissants from a french bakery – they were stuffed with Almond Paste and topped with toasted almonds. I’d love to recreate that recipe.

  50. Cali says

    Yum! Those pictures are irresistible! I would use the almond paste to try this recipe for sure. Getting good ideas from the other comments too!

  51. Larissa C. says

    I’m pretty sure it’s not just wanting to make these cookies, it’s a have to make them! They look amazing! I would definitely use the paste to make these cookies 🙂 Or at least try 😉

  52. Bri says

    I would use the almond paste to make these cookies! They sound and look so good! Thank you Odense and Katie! 🙂

  53. Mary K. says

    I have a healthy cherry cookie recipe that calls for almond paste. I’ve been wanting to make them lately.

  54. Jeanetta says

    Gooey Middle Chocolate Chip Cookies look amazing, and so yummy. I would love to try the Almond Paste in the cookies, as well as cakes, bars, and muffins.

  55. Elizabeth Dultz says

    I love making healthy pancakes in the morning and experimenting with new flavors. I would definitely try to incorporate almond paste–maybe with blueberries!

  56. marvelous.max says

    Almond paste!!! As a true Dutch girl, I know just how to use it: Speculaastaart a.k.a. almond paste packed between two sheets of speculaas cookie dough, decorated with blanched almonds……yum!

  57. Jess says

    I am having a bake sale this Sunday to benefit a charity, and I would love to make these cookies for it!
    Not only would it be amazing to offer a gluten free and vegan option for people, but for it to be so decadent and fancy, I imagine these cookies would draw a crowd of people to be involved in the fundraiser who ordinarily would feel excluded.
    Thanks for the opportunity and the great recipe, Katie!

  58. Ashlee says

    I am definitely making these chocolate chip cookies with almond paste asap. I’m obsessed with almond and cannot wait to try this!!

  59. Lorrie says

    I plan on using this almond paste to make these wonderful looking cookies!! I also plan on looking for more wonderful recipes!! I have never used almond paste before.

  60. HealthFoodie says

    We’re On A Mission To Make It Easy For You To Change The Way You Cook, What You Eat And How You Prepare Delicious Recipes Every Day

  61. Jennifer says

    yum! I love almond paste but don’t use it enough. I think I’d first make the almond paste/pignoli cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar. I made those once before and loved them.
    THEN – I’d make these cookies 🙂

  62. Simplycomplexlife says

    Looks so yummy! I would use the paste as a filling for chocolate cupcakes. Almost like a German chocolate cupcake!

  63. Emma Meyer says

    My grandfather used to run a Swedish bakery and he had to best recipe for almond tarts. I would use the Odense almond tart to re-create that recipe for him to enjoy!

  64. Priyanka Patel says

    I would love to use the almond paste to make a delicious bundt cake! and of course, these cookies, which look mouthwatering!!

  65. Jessica Marquis says

    I’d use it to make these cookies for sure and those marzipan chocolate truffles you mentioned sound good as well!

  66. Eliza says

    I love all things almond! I would try adding a touch of the almond paste to your healthy Mounds bars to get the taste of Almond Joy without the crunchy nut,

  67. Fluffberries says

    Oooo I’d use the almond paste to make these cookies, or brownies or… I think it would taste good as filling for mochi too

  68. Jen @ says

    Oh, I love Ritter Sport chocolate marzipan bars! I found them on a trip to Amsterdam about 20 years ago and was thrilled when I started to see them in stores in the US, buy them regularly and enjoy a square or two as my nighttime chocolate treat more often than I’ll admit. My sister-in-law also makes an amazing marzipan pie, but I have never ever thought to add a ball of marzipan into the center of a cookie before. I am very excited to try this recipe, my favorite cookies are soft and chewy so these just sound perfect to me. Would love to win the giveaway so I can makes lots and lots of these cookies!

  69. Shannon says

    What have I been doing with my (baking) life? When I think of almond and almond flavor I think of cherries. I’m thinking it would be great to mix almond paste in some cherry oat bars. And probably also add some chocolate chips. Because, chocolate always.

  70. Emmy says

    FYI if you are using oat flour, you might want to start with < 1/4 cup milk and add more as needed. Following this recipe exactly, with no extra milk added, I ended up with too soft of dough. I had to freeze it before forming into balls.

  71. Catherine S says

    I would try the almond paste in our Sunday waffles, I never tell the kids I’m adding something I just surprise them!!

  72. Molly says

    I have never used almond paste before, but plan on using it to make these cookies. They look amazing! I’ve been making may of your recipes and taking them to my husband’s work. They loved the black bean brownies and sugar cookies.

  73. Kate says

    These cookies look fantastic!! I would also love to use almond paste for filling a sweet bread or pastry, maybe pairing with raspberries or peaches. Yum!

  74. Melody says

    If I win this almond paste, I would definitely make these cookies, and give some to my mom, who likes making various desserts out of it!

  75. Aalia Khazi says

    Wow, I want to make these!! I would use almond paste for milkshakes for sure, I think it would make them really creamy and yummy!

  76. Veronica says

    These look so amazing, and I want to buy some almond paste just to make these stat! And then (if there’s any left 😉 ) I might try it in a gluten-free carrot cake I’m planning on making.

  77. Aimie says

    I picked up almond paste for the first time ever after seeing this post because I HAD to make these cookies. And I am so glad I did. They tasted divine and were possibly even fatter with more filling than yours, which was a great surprise. And I wish I had bought more of the almond paste because it was totally different from what I’d thought it would be and I LOVED IT!

  78. VR says

    Looks soooo yummy! I wish I could just grab that cookie through my computer screen 🙂 i will just have to make these! <3

  79. Carol says

    Hi Katie – these look so good but I have a question about the sugar you used. When you say unrefined sugar do you mean to use something like agave, honey, or maple syrup? Thanks!

    • Jason Sanford says

      You can actually use plain white sugar as well. Unrefined would be something like Sucanat, coconut sugar, or evaporated cane juice (so all granulated options).

  80. Susan says

    Oh wow!! I love marzipan and chocolate. I’d put it in my green acorn cookies, these chocolate chip cookies, layered in brownies, in stollen, in bear claws, layered in a chocolate cake, ummmm… just off the top of my heard, but this chocolate chip cookie idea is brilliant!

  81. allison whiting says

    I made these cookies for a small family dinner, and they were stellar. I made one batch with white flour because I was worried how the guests would feel about whole wheat cookies, but then for the second batch I used the spelt flour and they might have been even better that way! I bought the almond paste especially for this recipe, but it’s gone now so I’d love to win some more 😉

  82. Kelly Kurcina says

    Almond paste inside cookies~amazing idea! Cannot wait to try. I browsed the Odense website and want to try the Blueberry Almond Buckle!! Great give-a-way!!

  83. Annamarie V says

    I would use the almond paste to make a frosting for cake, I love almond past and will have to try the cookie recipe.

  84. Anita C Earnest says

    I love your almond paste use it all the time to make pinoli cookies one of my family’s favorites will be trying theses soon as I get moved.

  85. Tess Christensen says

    I’ve never used almond paste before – I’d LOVE to try it in this yummy-looking recipe! Pick me pick me pick me!!!

  86. Sofia says

    These look SO good! I want to make these right now! I would definitely use the almond paste to make these cookies! Or maybe use them in some ice cream! Or chocolate, or wait – almond paste chocolate cups!

  87. Nicole says

    Hi Katie,

    I couldn’t find the winner of the first week. Will they be announced in the comments or informed per mail?

  88. Katie D. says

    I would use the paste to make these cookies! I have been to two stores looking for lemons paste and they said they only carry it during the holidays. I’m not giving up because these cookies look so yummy! I really appreciate your healthy recipes. My husband gave me your cookbook and I love it! Keep up the great work!

  89. Donna Wilkinson says

    Yummy to my tummy! I would love to win the almond paste! I think you could put it in so many recipes!

  90. Callie says

    Hi, I made these as a test run for Easter and they are perfect! I love the almond paste! Hoping to win the giveaway, because I’ll definitely be making these cookies many more times in the future 🙂 🙂

  91. Sarah says

    I would use this paste in my biscotti cookie recipe! Or maybe mix it with coconut butter and maple syrup to make an “icing” to spread on cakes or muffins? These cookies look amazing as usual Katie!

  92. Gail says

    I just wanted to let you know that I have made these cookies three times since you posted the recipe. I was able to find the almond paste for a good price at Walmart and discovered it is also really good in pancakes. You just mix some right into the batter. Thanks for introducing me to a fun new product. I’m going to try it in muffins next and would love to win some!

  93. Jessy says

    My daughters 4th bday is next month and I’m baking her cake ?
    I would def. use the almond paste for her lovely unicorn bday cake!!

  94. chocolate fan says

    I wanted to report back that I brought these to a book club meeting last week and they were a huge hit. Everyone was asking for the recipe! I went back to Whole Foods and stocked up on the almond paste so I could make more batches, but I’d still love to win this giveaway because no one can ever have too many cookies!

  95. Shannon Dickinson says

    I would probably make some sort of breakfast bread/pastry. I love the taste of almond paste in baked goods!

  96. Caroline L says

    How fun! I would definitely make these cookies! I’d also look through some French recipes because this is a delicious and common ingredient in France.

  97. Jenn says

    Oh my stars these look good. I’m picking up almond paste today. Hope they have it because I NEED these cookies in my life!

  98. Sachi Yanko says

    Can Canadians enter this contest? 🙂
    I’m not sure if I’ve tried almond paste recently, so I’m not sure if this would work, but a cauliflower-sweet-potato-almond curry sounds good to me! Otherwise, I would make an almond loaf.
    These look amazing!!! Katie, I’m a big fan of your recipes and enjoy sharing them with my family.

  99. Bonnie Campbell says

    I have never used almond paste before, but am anxious to try it! I will try the gooey middle chocolate chip cookies first! And look for more ways to use it.

  100. sara says

    YUM! I would try everything on their website. Please choose me for this lovely giveaway, the almond paste sounds so good!

  101. Michelle Hess says

    These look amazing! I would definitely use the almond paste to make this recipe right here!! How do you come up with this stuff!

  102. Tonia says

    These look and sound delicious. And I haven’t baked with almond paste before, so these look like a good first item to try.

  103. Rochelle says

    Oh my gosh… almond paste has so many great uses! I make vegan Italian rainbow cookies that call for almond paste. I could use them as centers for truffles. And, of course, the box I have right now will be used for this recipe! Thank you!

  104. Steve Jones says

    I want to make these cookies, but cannot find the almond paste, so I would definitely use it to make this recipe. But I think I’d also like to try it in donuts. As always, thanks, Katy, for your awesome recipes. You rock! I think of you whenever I’m at Sticky Fingers in DC.

  105. Jen T says

    I’ve never used almond paste, but I thought it might work in the crust for pecan cups or rugelah cookies – which are usually just butter and cream cheese. These cookies sound great – I do not like marshmallows – so I was glad to find out it wasn’t really in there. Thanks! Jen

  106. Yenta Chasha says

    I enjoy eating almond paste plain, I’ve never tried it in baked goods but would love to do so!

  107. Kendra Ross says

    Ohhh Katie….
    You have just opened up a world of possibility I never knew existed!
    I’m wondering about frostings, adding it to anything needing a bit more adhesive power, icecream?
    oh la la..can’t wait to give this a go!
    Thanks Katie!

  108. Jessica says

    I would make almond croissants! I haven’t really had them since I became vegan 3 years, but I’m motivated to try! Definitely feel inspired to know that almond paste is vegan, yay! Thanks Katie!!

  109. PhoebeG says

    I’ve never used almond paste but would like to try. If I win it I will make the gory center chocolate chip recipe and expand from ther. I tried the marshmallow centered cookie and liked it.

  110. Vivian Gray says

    Oh almond paste my family is in love with it.I make Snowy Bonbon cookies that has a ball of almond paste inside.. These cookies are delicious. I will also try this Gooey Middle Chocolate Chip Cookie. I will share my Snowy Almond cookie w/you
    Katie. Just send me an email & I’ll send it to you so you can post it..

  111. Ameena says

    I’ve been trying to eat clean but it’s jut so hard for me as a student because most healthy things are too expensive, especially things like almond butter, almond paste, or almond flour. I really want to use this almond paste to make these chocolate chip cookies! I loooove gooey chocolate chip cookies, and healthy ones would be just amazing. This recipe looks delicious and I want to make it!

  112. Sandra says

    Almond paste is yummy and not too sweet. I would make an almond raisin brioche I’ve been waiting to bake. What s great breakfast bread! A cup of hot tea or coffee and some warm almond brioche…. mmmm!

  113. Kathryn says

    How interesting! I’ve never heard of almond paste, but would love to try it in these cookies or in something cherry flavored.

  114. Michele A. Moore says

    I usually purchase almond paste in a can. Oh so much nicer to have it in a packaged bar. Can’t wait to try this brand out.
    Odense will surely be on my grocery list. Thank you for this kind offer.

  115. Sophie says

    I’d use almond paste for a lovely surprise middle in a pan of black bean brownies! Almonds are the best <3

  116. Sarah Flores says

    Awesome!! The first time I made these they were huge and I was only able to get 12 cookies. The baked cookie was more almond paste than cookie. So the second time, I cut the amount of Almond Paste in-half but still was only able to get 12 cookies. She’s so right that if you let the cookie dough get sticky, it’s practically impossible to use.

    I found out about these cookies on Odense’s website. I followed their adjustments to the flour mix, and their lower sugar quantity.

    Thanks Katie!!
