  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil , softened at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup drippy almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar , maple syrup OR honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup cacao powder OR unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats , use gluten free as needed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut , plus more for topping

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg, almond butter and coconut oil until creamy and smooth. Add the honey, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Beat until combined.

  3. Stir in the flour, cocoa powder, followed by the coconut and oats until everything is just combined. Fold in sliced almonds.

  4. Use a 1/4 cup to scoop out the dough and drop onto the parchment paper. Pat the tops down to flatten slightly. Sprinkle tops with more shredded coconut, if desired.

  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10-14 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown and set.
