  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flaxseed with water. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes or until gelled.
  • In a large bowl, combine the almond butter, vanilla, coconut sugar, and flax mixture. Stir until well combined.
  • And the oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined. Mixture will be very thick. Gently stir in chocolate chunks.
  • Roll dough into 12 balls, place on parchment-lined baking sheet and gently press to for thick disks.
  • Bake cookies for 10 minutes, remove from oven, and let rest until firm—they will be gooey at first.
  • Leftovers will keep in airtight container for up to 3 days or refrigerated for a week.


*I love using roasted almond butter when I make these cookies. However, you could use any type of nut butter you like—just be aware that the flavor may change slightly depending on the nut.
If you are nut-free, I’d suggest using sunflower seed butter—I haven’t tested it, but have found the flavor and texture of “sun-butter” to be compatible with most nut butters!
