Total time: 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup thick almond butter
  • 1 egg, whisked, or 1 flaxseed "egg" (see instructions)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons stevia, or to taste
  • ¼ cup unsweetened vegan carob chips or unsweetened chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  3. Add all ingredients to a large bowl.
  4. Now you gotta get down and dirty - get your hands in there and mix and blend all the ingredients until fully incorporated into a dough. (You could use a stand mixer with a dough hook if you have one, but it's more fun this way! There's no way you can mix this puppy with a spoon.)
  5. Scoop out about a tablespoon of dough for each cookie, form into a ball and place on cookie sheet. Press down lightly on each cookie to lightly flatten them a little bit.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before touching them or they will crumble apart.
Tips:
  1. You can substitute other nut butters. You just want it to be room temp and thick.
  2. You can substitute for the almond extract.
  3. Flaxseed Egg Substitute: Mix 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 Tablespoons water and let sit in fridge for 10 minutes.
