Servings: 12 cookies


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tbsp flax
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup palm shortening
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (we like Enjoy Life brand)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix flax and water until combined. Set aside to thicken.
  • In a large bowl, add palm shortening and almond butter. With an electric mixer, beat palm shortening and almond butter until well combined.
  • Add honey, vanilla, and flax egg to the mixture. Beat until combined.
  • Add baking powder, salt, and almond flour to the mixture. Beat until well combined and a dough forms.
  • Add chocolate chips to the mixture. Beat until chocolate chips are evenly mixed throughout dough.
  • Scoop ~2tbsp of dough and form into balls. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes. These cookies burn very quickly, so keep a close eye on them. I usually bake for 10 minutes, but baking time will depend on your specific oven.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy!


The following substitutions will probably work, but I have not tested them:
*If vegan, try subbing brown rice syrup for honey
**If you don't like flax eggs, try subbing 1 medium-large egg (but do not under bake at all)
***These chocolate chip cookies are absolutely delicious with peanut butter instead of almond butter, but be aware that peanuts are not paleo.
****We recommend Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips
