Makes 16 cookies


1 ¼ cup almond meal
½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup coconut sugar
¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. Himalayan sea salt
3 Tbsp. melted ghee butter or coconut oil
½ tsp. almond extract
1 organic cage-free egg


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together almond meal, shredded coconut, baking powder, sea salt and coconut sugar.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, beat egg until it’s double in size and lighter shade of yellow, allowing for an airy and light batter. Whisk in melted ghee and almond extract. Fold in almond meal mixture until well combined, then add chocolate chips.
  4. Use a teaspoon to measure the cookies. Roll each bit into a ball, place on cookie sheet and push down in the center of the cookie with your finger, creating a small crater.
  5. Bake for 7-10 minutes.
