  • ½ cup melted (and cooled) butter, ghee, or coconut oil

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla extract, until smooth.

  • Using a medium cookie scoop (1 ½ tablespoons) dollop 18 cookies on the baking sheet. Use your fingers to flatten the dough into cookie shape, as the cookies will not flatten much on their own while baking.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are slightly golden on the edges.

  • If you'd like extra large cookies, you could make 12 cookies (about 2 tablespoons each) on a single baking sheet. If you do that, increase the cook time by 1-2 minutes. Just be forewarned that they may slightly touch each other when baking.
  • Note: based on feedback (thank you!), the salt in the recipe has been reduced to 1/2 teaspoon.
