Flourless Chocolate Almond Cookies
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup creamy almond butter
- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar firmly packed (coconut sugar for paleo)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line two large baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg. Add the almond butter, brown sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder, and vanilla, and mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in the chopped almonds.
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.
