Healthy Double Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • cup  smooth almond butter make sure you’re using the just nuts variety (mine was runny, but cold from the fridge)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup  dark chocolate chips
  • Maldon sea salt optional for topping

Instructions

Flax Egg:

  • Place 1 tablespoon golden flaxseed meal into a large bowl.
  • Stir in 3 tablespoons water.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes.

Healthy Double Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 rimmed baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
  • To the flax egg (directions above), add in cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, almond butter, honey, and vanilla extract.
  • Use your hand mixer to beat mixture together until well combined.
  • Beat in dark chocolate chips.
  • Use a medium sized cookie scoop to scoop dough into 18 cookie dough balls.
  • Place 9 of the cookie dough balls onto each of the prepared baking sheets.
  • Working with one sheet at a time, bake cookies in preheated oven for 8 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and top with a sprinkle of optional maldon sea salt.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • Cool slightly and enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.

Notes

  • Keep in mind these are VERY lightly sweetened from the honey, but the addition of dark chocolate chips makes these perfect, I think.
  • See notes in post above on how to use a chai egg or "regular" egg and how to make these vegan with agave or maple syrup!
