  • 1 cup salted peanut butter
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup caster sugar super fine sugar
  • 1 flax egg 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons warm water, stir well, and allow the mixture to set for about 10 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup 30g vegan dark chocolate chunks
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon flaky sea salt to your taste


  • Preheat the oven and prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Mix the peanut butter, almond flour, sugar, egg, vanilla extract in a bowl until well-mixed, followed by the vegan chocolate chunks.
  • Using a spoon, scoop between1-1.5 tablespoons of dough and form into a small ball.
  • Drop the cookie dough balls unto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat until the rest of the dough has been used up (you may need 2 baking trays).
  • Make sure each cookie ball is about 1.5 inches away from the others.
  • Using a fork, press down on the cookie ball to flatten it. The repeat in the opposite direction so you end up with criss-cross marks. Continue till all the cookies are flattened.
  • Sprinkle on the salt then bake in the preheated oven for 10-14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are browning.
  • Transfer the cookies sheet to a cooling rack and let cool before removing (as they are fragile and will break if you try and remove them when hot)



  • Make sure the cookie dough balls are a similar size so that they cook at the same rate.
  • If you want your cookies to brow evenly than turn the tray half way through cooking.
  • Cooking times will vary on how much you flatten the dough. Start with the lowest cooking time and then add a few minutes more according to your taste.
  • Use other flavourings to your taste, example cinnamon extract or other spices.
  • You can swap almond butter or cashew butter instead of peanut butter.
  • Please do let cookies cool on the sheet (transferred to a cooling rack), otherwise they will break if you try and remove them before then.
