  • 1 cup almond meal
  • scant 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon optional, but delicious!
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1-2 tsp water as needed
  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix the almond meal, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  • Stir in the coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  • Add in water (as needed) to bring everything together.
  • Stir in the chopped chocolate last.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet (the edges should be golden).
  • Let them sit on the pan for 5-10 minutes (they firm up during this time, so this is an important step!).
  • Enjoy!
