The taste of the candy bar with none of the guilt.

  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

  • 1/4 cup Nutiva coconut oil melted

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla bean or vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 egg (I used a flax egg replacer)
  • 1/2 dark chocolate bar roughly chopped (cacao nibs would work well too)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.  (I actually ground up some rolled oats to make my oat flour.)
  3. In a saucepan on med heat, combine the almond butter, coconut oil and maple syrup and stir until smooth.
  4. Let mixture cool.
  5. Once it’s cooled add it to the dry ingredients and also add the vanilla, egg and almond extract.
  6. Once everything is well combined, fold in the dark chocolate.
  7. Drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet. 
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes and serve.
