Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chopped chocolate* or more
  • optional: 2 tbsp coconut sugar**

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Whisk eggs together in a large bowl; then, add the almond butter and honey and stir to combine (you can do this by hand but I like to use my electric mixer). Last, add the baking soda.
  • Stir in the chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) by hand.
  • Use your hands to form cookie dough into balls, placing them directly onto a nonstick baking sheet. Then gently press down on the cookies, flattening them out a bit.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until edges are set.
  • Leave cookies on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

*I like using chopped chocolate vs. chocolate chips in cookies because it melts better, but chocolate chips work in this recipe if that's what you have on hand.
**These cookies aren't super sweet on their own, so if you want them to be sweeter, simply add 2 tbsp coconut sugar to the batter.
