  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tablespoons water)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Make the flax egg: In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon ground flax with 2.5 tablespoons warm water. Let sit for a few minutes.
  • Cream together brown sugar and coconut oil with a wooden spoon in a large bowl.
  • Add baking soda, salt, vanilla and the flax egg. Mix well.
  • Add the almond flour to the bowl and mix until combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons and roll into about 12 balls. Place onto prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly with your hand.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before moving to cooling rack or eating. They will firm up a bit as they sit. Store in a covered container for 3-4 days at room temperature, or longer in the refrigerator.
