- 1 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/3 cup tahini
- 1 large egg room temp.
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted/cooled
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the tahini, coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract.
Mix the almond flour, cacao powder, baking soda and sea salt together in a separate bowl. Then add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until a doughy consistency forms.
Fold in the dark chocolate chocolate chips. Use a spoon or cookie scoop to drop dough into 12-14 balls. Flatten with a fork gently and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool on a wire rack. Enjoy immediately, or store in an airtight container up to 4 days in the fridge or freeze for up to one month.
