Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, pasture raised/and or organic, if possible 
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened and unsalted almond butter (I use this brand)
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened organic and pasture raised if possible
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, at least 50% cacao
  • Sea salt for sprinkling

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together egg, almond butter, softened butter, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, and cinnamon using a sturdy whisk or hand held electric mixer.
  3. Once mixed thoroughly, add chocolate chips to mixture and combine using a spatula.
  4. Using a cookie scoop spoon, or your hands, form into 10-12 balls and set onto baking sheet. *Be sure to leave enough space between each cookie as batter will start to spread out when being cooked.
  5. Once all dough is formed into balls and spread out evenly onto baking sheet, sprinkle each ball of dough with a pinch of sea salt.
  6. Place into oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat, place onto a cooling rack until cool to touch, and serve!
