Makes about 12 small cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal (ground almonds works)
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (I used half brown sugar, half honey)
  • 1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
  • 3 heaping Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Ground almonds in food processor until powdery with few chunks – or buy almond meal.
  2. Mix with coconut (make sure it isn’t sweetended), baking powder, salt, cacao nibs and sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine egg, coconut oil and vanilla.
  4. Mix wet into dry ingredients until combined.
