These cookies are simple to make and easy to modify.

This recipe is easily paleofied or veganized. The only “required” ingredients are nut butter, egg (or replacer), and a source of sweetness.


  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1 egg (or the equivalent of egg replacer for the vegan version)
  • 1/2 cup honey, sugar, or sucanat  (I intentionally make mine less sweet-sometimes using only 1/3 cup.  When fixing these for others, I’ve used up to 1 cup of sugar, and they’ve been very tasty and popular.)
  • 1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or carob chips (Using the smaller chips makes it seem like there’s more chocolate.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • almond flour- just enough to make the batter cohesive, approx 1/4 cup



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix above ingredients
  3. Using a cookie scoop, place cookies on cookie tray.
  4. Bake for approx. 8 minutes.
  5. Let cookies cool, remove from tray, and enjoy.

Makes a baker’s dozen.
