Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut and Pecans

Earlier this year I discovered Almond Flour and have been loving using it in recipes. You can even make it yourself by throwing a handful of almonds in a food processor and processing until it becomes flour consistency.


  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour (or almond meal)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (I used baking soda)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (or substitute)
  • 3 tbsps coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond meal, choc chips, coconut, pecans, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat egg until uniform in colour and doubled in volume. 
  3. Whisk in the coconut oil and vanilla. Add chia seeds if desired. Add to dry ingredients and mix until combined. Chill in fridge for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375F. 
  4. Shape dough into balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten down slightly to form shape. Sprinkle a little bit of coconut and pecans on top of each.  
  5. Bake until edges begin to brown, about 7-10 minutes.
