These soft and chewy chocolate almond butter cookies are paleo, grain free, dairy free, and gluten free. They’re a great source of healthy fats and each cookie has over 4 grams of protein. Eating healthy doesn’t need to be boring and bland, you can still have your treats and these are a nutritious option that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

You will need:

  • 1 cup all natural creamy almond butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt or himalayan salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • almonds to top cookies

Preheat oven to 350F. In a mixing bowl, beat together almond butter, maple syrup, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt until smooth, about 2 minutes. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop tbsp sized balls of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Top each cookie with almonds and sprinkle with a little salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies turn a slight golden brown underneath, they will be puffy! Cool on being sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
