  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup almond butter drippy
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or sub cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the egg, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla together.
  • To that same bowl, add the oats, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt and stir to combine. Last, stir in the chocolate chips. NOTE: the mixture will be very wet/soft -- that's normal!
  • Use your hands to roll the dough into balls and place them 2" apart on the baking sheet. To prevent the dough from sticking to your hands, wet your hands beforehand. Then, use your hands to flatten the balls into cookies.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Leave them on the baking sheet for 1 minute before carefully transferring them onto a cooling rack. The cookies will be soft when they come out of the oven, but will firm up as they cool. Enjoy!


*Calories are for 1 cookie and are an estimation; this recipe makes 12-16 cookies depending on how large/small you make them 
*NOTE: these cookies expand quite a bit in the oven, so make sure to space them out on the baking sheet before baking them
*Want to make these gluten free? Use gluten free rolled oats
*Try using raisins or chopped walnuts instead of chocolate chips for something different
*Storage: store cookies are room temperature for up to 3 days; or, place them in a freezer-safe bag for up to 3 months
