  • 1 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt+more for sprinkling
  • ¼ cup unsweetened 100% cocao powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil (melted and cooled)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond butter
  • ¼ blanched almonds + 2 tablespoons for topping
  • 2 tablespoons cup dark chocolate chips (dairy free)


  • ADJUST AN OVEN RACK to the middle position about heat the oven to 350˚. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder together in bowl.
  • IN A LARGE BOWL or stand mixer, beat together the melted coconut oil, egg and vanilla together on medium-low speed. Stir in the sugar and almond butter until smooth.
  • STIR IN THE FLOUR MIXTURE in 2-3 batches with beater on low speed until just combined. Using a wooden spoon, stir in ¼ cup of almonds until evenly distributed.
  • IN A SMALL BOWL COMBINE CHOCOLATE chips and 2 tablespoons of almonds. Working with an even tablespoon of dough at a time, roll the dough into balls, dip into almonds and chocolate chips and lay them on the prepared baking sheets, spaced about 2 inches apart. Using the bottom of a glass, press the dough balls flat. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • BAKE THE COOKIES one sheet at a time until the edges are set, but centers seem underdone, 8 minutes.
  • LET THE COOKIES COOL on the baking sheet for 1 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
