  • 1 flax egg 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons warm water
  • ¾ cup all-natural unsalted creamy almond butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup dairy-free chocolate chips I use Enjoy Life brand
  • sea salt for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare flax egg, set aside. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk almond butter, maple syrup, and flax egg together. Add almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop cookie dough and gently roll into a loose ball with your hands. (If dough doesn't roll into a loose ball, add a bit more almond flour.)
    The dough will be sticky, spray your hands will cooking spray as needed to make rolling easier. Place ball on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies start to look golden on top (I found 11 minutes was perfect for my oven). Allow to rest on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing with a spatula and placing on wire rack. Leave on wire rack until completely cool.
