Flourless Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Rachel Conners
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 18 cookies 1x


  • 1 cup smooth almond butter, you can use any nut or seed butter of your choice
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg or flax egg, for the flax egg, whisk together 1 tablespoon flax meal with 2.5 tablespoons of water and let set for 5 minutes before using
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup mini dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond butter, coconut sugar, egg (or flax egg), and baking soda. Fold in the chocolate chips. Let the dough rest for about 15 minutes.
  3. Using a small cookie dough scoop, form tablespoon-sized balls of dough and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Let them cool for at least 15 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them carefully to a cooling rack. They will be crumbly if you try to move them too early, so be sure to let them set up.


To keep completely paleo, make sure to use a paleo-friendly chocolate (you can make your own with this recipe) or leave out the chocolate chips to keep 100% paleo. If you use regular size chocolate chips instead of mini chocolate chips, use 3/4 cup.
