Healthy Single Serve Cookie – Ingredients

Almond butter (can sub peanut butter) – this creates a nice base for all the ingredients to be added to, and also allows this recipe to be oil free.

Melted coconut oil -can sub avocado oil or oil of choice – just make sure it’s a light flavored oil. I prefer avocado.

Coconut sugar – the main sweetener in this recipe. Coconut sugar is unrefined and has a similar flavor to brown sugar.

Maple syrup – adds a little extra sweetness.

Egg yolk – binds everything together and gives the cookie a great texture.

Vanilla extract – gives this recipe that homemade taste.

Sea salt – Needed to balance the sweetness. I love adding some flaky sea salt to the top of my finished cookie as well!

Baking soda – helps the cookie rise to perfection.

Almond flour – a great flour to bake with. It adds some protein, and keeps things gluten free.

Chocolate chips – I love the Guittard brand but feel free to use any brand you’d like!

Next, mix in the almond flour until a dough forms. Add in the 2 tbsp chocolate chips and stir until evenly encorporated. 

Finally, roll the dough in between your hands to form a cookie dough ball. Place the dough on the cookie sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes.
