  • 3/4 cup organic palm shortening
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (shake the can to mix)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Place the shortening, coconut sugar, coconut milk and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to blend all ingredients together until creamy.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix on medium speed for one minute, until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop heaping tablespoons of dough, evenly spaced. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are turning golden brown. (Note: if the cookies haven't flattened all the way, gently tap the baking sheet on your counter as soon as you remove them from the oven and they'll flatten).
