Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour 150 grams
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar 50 grams
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 1/4 cup almond butter without salt or sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 30 grams
  • 1 flax egg 1 T. flax mixed with 3 T. water
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips feel free to use more or less

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix together the almond flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • In a second bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the sugar, vanilla, almond butter and coconut oil for 1 minute, scraping the side of the bowl often. Beat in the flax egg.
  • Add the almond flour mixture and stir by hand until blended.
  • If the dough looks too wet, sprinkle in some more almond flour. The dough should be the consistency of thick mashed potatoes. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop up 18 heaps of dough and arrange on the parchment lined baking sheet spacing about 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet for about 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Notes

For larger cookies, make 9 or 10 dough balls instead of 18 and flatten them slightly before baking.
