Main Ingredients

1 egg

3 tbsp pure maple syrup or sub manuka honey

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup cashew butter or sub any nut/seed butter

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

1 1/4 cup almond flour **

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 90% cacao chocolate bar, chopped into pieces **

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup unflavored collagen peptides*** (optional) or sub 1/4 cup more almond flour


1Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2Whisk egg in large bowl then pour in maple syrup, melted coconut oil, cashew butter, vanilla and almond milk to whisk again.

3Stir in almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and some of the sea salt. Fold in chocolate chunks, leaving several chocolate chunks aside.

4Place parchment paper over a baking sheet and use a spoon and spatula to drop batter, dividing it into a dozen cookies. Place the last several pieces of chocolate over the top, sprinkle sea salt, then place in the oven for about 12 minutes on the center rack. Then turn the oven on broil and cook 1- 1 1/2 additional minutes - keep a close eye on it because they can burn quickly!

Additional Notes

NOTES: *Opt for almond FLOUR not meal because the flour uses blanched almonds (almonds without the skin) and it creates a much smoother texture when baking.

**Try and stick to 70% cacao or above. I usually use 90% Lindt bars

***You can get many different brands of collagen peptides, I like Vital Protein's marine collagen or Organika's marine collagen. You can also get good quality, non-branded stuff at Bulk Barn if you just want to try it out before buying a lot at once.
