  • ¾ cup coconut sugar or sugar free granulated sweetener
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup cashew butter or other nut or seed butters
  • 1 egg or 1 flax egg*
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and prepare a cookie sheet by lining with parchment paper. If using, prepare the flax egg.
  2. In a bowl whisk together coconut sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Add nut (or seed) butter and 1 egg (or gelled flax egg) and mix everything (with a mixer or by hand with a wooden spoon) until combined. Stir in optional chocolate chips.

  3. Use a cookie scoop (1.5 tablespoons size) to form cookie dough balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten the dough balls by hand or press down on them a little with the back of a spoon.

  4. Bake the cookies for 9-12 minutes. 9 minutes for chewy cookies, 12 for crispier ones.
  5. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to let cool fully.
