  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chunks
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and maple syrup until smooth. Beat in the almond and vanilla extract.

  2. In a seperate smaller mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and powder, and salt. Slowly stir in the dry mixture into the large mixing bowl until a soft dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chunks and walnuts. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour-overnight.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Taking a cookie scoop, scoop out dough onto the baking sheet. Slightly press down with the palm of your hand. Bake for 15 min. until slightly golden brown. Cool for 5 min. on baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt before serving.
