  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil or grass-fed butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • big pinch fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts more if desired
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chunks
  • Coarse Flaky Sea Salt for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 °F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Melt coconut oil and chocolate over a double-boiler, or using preferred method. Once melted, whisk to combine and set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, sea salt and whisk to combine, making sure to get out any clumps.
  • Add in honey, egg and vanilla extract and whisk together. Then add in the melted chocolate mixture and combine together.
  • Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Using a cookie scoop, or spoon, portion a tablespoon sized dough and roll into a ball and place on baking sheet 1-1/2" apart. Flatten cookie down a bit, as these will not spread very much on their own.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes (see note).
  • Let cool on a rack slightly before serving.


We like our cookies a bit underbaked, so 10 minutes is our preferred baking time.
