All the delicious chunky, crispy-edged, chocolate chip goodness of oatmeal cookies but without any oats or grains. Easy, one bowl, less than 30 minutes!




  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Prepare the flax eggs and set aside to gel for 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk together the almond flour, hemp seeds, coconut sugar, baking soda, and salt until lump free.
  4. Add the almond butter, vanilla, flax eggs, and coconut oil.
  5. Fold in cacao nibs (save a few for on top).
  6. Scoop onto a lined baking sheet (about 2 tbsp per cookie) leaving space in between because they will spread. No more than 8 cookies per pan.
  7. Add a few cacao nibs on top of each and press them down lightly.
  8. Bake for 15-17 minutes at 350ºF.
  9. Cool for 10 minutes on the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
  10. Enjoy warm, or I love them straight from the freezer too!


*You can sub non-dairy milk to make them oil-free, but they will be less crispy and rich.
