  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil at room temperature (should be soft)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-natural almond butter ingredients should just be just nuts and sometimes salt (be sure to thoroughly stir before measuring out)
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour spoon and leveled
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (12 oz) bag chocolate chips/chunks I used a combination
  • Maldon sea salt for garnish


  • Line two rimmed baking sheets with silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together flax and water.
  • Set aside in the fridge to gel for 15 minutes.
  • Once the flax mixture has set, pour it into a large bowl.
  • Add in coconut oil, vanilla, almond butter, and brown sugar.
  • Mix until *just* combined.
  • Add in almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix until *just* combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips/chunks, again, until *just* combined.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, portion out 8 dough scoops onto each prepared baking sheet.
  • Use your hands to press each cookie to 1 inch thick (the cookies don’t spread much).
  • Place into fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake cookies in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with maldon sea salt.
  • Let sit for 2-5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Serve and enjoy!

You don’t want to over-mix, because the almond butter/flour can become overly oily.
