Ingredients

  • 1 cup all natural creamy or chunky almond butter (use your favorite brand)
  • 1/3 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, gluten free if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3.5 oz dark chocolate bar coarsely chopped and divided (use your favorite dark chocolate bar and chop it)
  • sea salt, for sprinkling
  • about 18 almonds for topping, if desired (not included in calorie count)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, beat together almond butter, honey (or maple syrup), egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt until smooth and creamy; about 2 minutes. Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chunks.
  3. Drop tablespoon sized balls of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parachment paper, top each cookies with extra chocolate chunks and an almond if desired.
