chewy chocolate almond butter cookies

Nut butters are part of my everyday eating -from peanut to almond butter I’ll find any excuse to add it to my meal or snacks. But granted I have a major sweet tooth, I had to add it to my favorite dessert…cookies.

These cookies are healthier than your average cookie:

  • Sweetened with coconut sugar.
  • Gluten-free -> but feel free to sub regular flour…nothing wrong with it!
  • Coconut oil instead of vegan butter.
  • Extra boost of protein from the almond butter.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup creamy almond butter
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax seed meal + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour such as Bob's Red Mill 1-1
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 oz. dark chocolate, roughly chopped I used Theo's 70% dark chocolate bar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

  2. In a small bowl, prepare flax egg by whisking together flax seed meal and water. Set aside for 2 min. to thicken up.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together almond butter, coconut oil, flax egg, vanilla, and vinegar until creamy. Stir in the rest of the ingredients (except chocolate) until a soft dough forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 min.

  4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop even amounts of dough on to the baking sheet. Slightly press down with the palm of your hand. Press a small square of chocolate into the center of each cookie. Bake for 15 min. (Important!) let cool for 10 min. before serving.
