  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3.5 oz bittersweet chocolate cut into chunks, I use one 3.5 ounce bar Green & Black's Organic 70% Dark chocolate


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line two large baking sheets with silicon baking mats or parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg.
  • Add the almond butter, coconut sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder, coconut, and vanilla, and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  • Form balls with about 2 tablespoons of dough, place about six or seven on each baking sheet, a couple of inches apart, and press down to form thick disks.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set but still slightly soft to the touch.
  • Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
