  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup honey (see note)
  • ¼ cup almond butter (I used chunky)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup coconut oil , melted
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup slivered almonds , optional


  • Whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, honey, almond butter and vanilla. Whisk in melted coconut oil. When the liquid ingredients are smooth and homogenous, stir into the dry ingredients.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and almonds, if using.
  • Chill until the dough is cold enough to easily hold a shape, at least 1 hour.
  • Pre-heat oven to 325° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Scoop or drop into small balls, about 1-inch in diameter, onto prepared baking sheets, about 1 ½ inches apart. Use a small scoop, or 1 ½ teaspoons dough.
  • Alternately, form into larger balls, about ¼ cup of dough each. Arrange 3 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Press the cookies with your palm to make ½-inch thick disks.
  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies are just starting to brown.
  • Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.


  • Maple syrup is a fine substitute for the honey in this recipe. I like and use both.
