  • 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.
