Yield 12 1x



  • 1/2 cup drippy, all-natural almond butter*
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup finely ground blanched almond flour (we recommend THIS product by Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • sea salt (for topping)


  1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Next, place all ingredients into a medium bowl and mix until combined. Your dough should be similar to classic cookie dough.
  3. Use a 1-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop dough into your hands. Roll into a ball and slightly flatten in a cookie shape and place on the baking sheet. Repeat.
  4. Add additional chocolate chips (if you love chocolate) to the tops of each cookie.
  5. Bake at 350ºF for 11-13 minutes or until the cookies have firmed up.
  6. Immediately transfer cookies from pan to a cooling rack and sprinkle on coarse sea salt for the final touch of goodness.

Tips & Notes
