Serves: 12 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup creamy natural almond butter (use the runny kind with only almonds as an ingredient)
  • 1 teaspoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (pick a good-quality cocoa powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (dairy free or vegan, if desired)
  • Fancy sea salt, for sprinkling on top
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond butter, coconut oil, sugar, vanilla, egg, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; mix until smooth and well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Roll dough into large balls (about 2 tablespoons) and place on baking sheet. Slightly flatten each dough ball with the palm of your hand. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until edges are set. Do not overbake!
  4. Once done baking, remove baking sheet from oven and allow cookies to cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Sprinkle each cookie with a little sea salt. Makes 12 cookies.
Notes
If you are allergy to almond butter, you can sub cashew butter. Peanut butter is good too!

If you have a nut allergy, try subbing sunflower seed butter.

To make these vegan: I think you could try a flax egg and the results would still be delicious!
