Recipe type: Dessert, Cookies, Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free
Serves: 12 cookies
  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 egg*
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup drippy tahini
  • 2 tablespoons melted and cooled coconut oil (melted butter or melted ghee will also work)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dry Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup fine packed almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (3 ounce) dark chocolate bar (at least 72%), coarsely chopped*
  • Fancy Maldon Salt, for sprinkling on top
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the following: egg, coconut sugar, tahini, melted and cooled coconut oil and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Next add the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until a cookie dough consistency forms, then fold in the chocolate chunks. Let dough sit for 5 minutes before rolling into balls.
  4. Grab about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough with your hands and roll into a ball as best you can. Place ball on cookie sheet and BARELY flatten the top of dough a bit with the palm of your hand.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes until edges are just slightly golden. We want to slightly underbake these so they stay gooey. Once done baking, immediately sprinkle with Maldon salt. Cool on cookie sheet for at least 5-10 minutes before removing from pan. Makes 10-12 cookies.
To make vegan: Feel free to use 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water) instead of an egg. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before using. Also make sure you are using a vegan chocolate.
