Serves: 12 cookies

Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp Himalayan sea salt ghee (I use 4th & Heart, but if you don't have the sea salt variety, just add 1/4 tsp salt to the cookies)
  • 4 tbsp smooth almond butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup salted almond chocolate chunks (I used Honey Bon Brand)
  • flakey sea salt for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix together the flour and baking soda in a bowl. 
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the ghee and almond butter until smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla, followed by the brown sugar.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet, then add chocolate chunks
  5. Drop tablespoon sized spoonfuls of the dough onto a cookie sheet, pressing down slightly. This recipe should make about 12 cookies.
  6. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the cookies are just slightly browned on the outside. I prefer mine a little extra gooey, so I opt for less baking time. Finish off the cookies with a sprinkle of flakey sea salt and enjoy!
