  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix your beaten egg, melted and cooled coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. (Please be sure your coconut oil is cool unless you wanted scrambled eggs!) Next add: almond flour, coconut flour & baking soda. Mix well to combine and form a dough. Fold in dark chocolate chunks. You may need to use your hands to bring the dough together so that it sticks.
  3. Use a cookie scoop or large tablespoon to drop dough onto ungreased baking sheet. Slightly flatten the dough with your hand. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden brown. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool! Enjoy!
