  • 2.5 cups almond flour (blanched)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or kosher salt)
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 F (175 degrees C). Prepare 2 large baking sheets (to make 26 small cookies) and line each one with parchment paper.
  • Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Wet Ingredients: In another medium bowl, whisk melted butter (cooled off and not hot) and maple syrup together. Next whisk in egg and vanilla extract.
  • Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture and whisk together with a whisk until combined. Stir in the  chocolate chips.
  • Scoop about 1 tablespoon (do not overflow though!) and place on the baking sheet (12 or 13 per each baking sheet). Gently tap the cookies with a back of a spoon to flatten them, but don't over do it! They shouldn't be completely flat. 
  • At 8 minute mark, open the oven door and gently press on top of each cookie with a fork to flatten them. Close the door and continue baking.
  • Bake until the edges are ONLY slightly golden brown and the cookies are porous, 10 to 15 minutes. Do not over bake! Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove them.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
