  • 1 c. almond meal
  • scant 1/4 t. sea salt
  • 1/8 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. cinnamon optional, but delicious!
  • 3 T. coconut oil or butter melted
  • 2 T. honey or maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/2-1 t. water only if/as needed
  • 2-4 T. chopped dark chocolate depending on your personal preference (I used 3 T.)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix the almond meal, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  • Stir in the coconut oil, honey/maple syrup, and vanilla.
  • Add in water as needed to bring everything together.
  • Stir in the chopped chocolate last.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes on a well oiled or 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!).
  • Remove and enjoy!
