Servings: 10 cookies
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup coconut oil melted, then cooled
- ⅓ cup almond butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 ½ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup arrowroot flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ - 1 cup chocolate chips use ½ cup if you’d like just a sprinkle of chocolate chips and 1 cup for a more chocolatey cookie
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl, mix together the egg, coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla until well combined.
Add the almond flour, arrowroot starch, baking powder & soda, and salt. Fold to combine until no flour clumps remain.
Stir the chocolate chips into the batter and mix well.
Chill dough for 10 minutes while oven finished preheating and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease with oil.
Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, roll the dough into balls then flatten the tops to make a disk-like shape, place on baking sheet, and bake for 8 - 10 minutes until the edges begin to brown.
Let cookies cool before transferring to a cooling rack and enjoy!
