  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup organic blackstrap molasses
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 175C/350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add your coconut oil, almond butter and molasses. Whisk through till incorporated.
  3. Next, add your almond flour, tapioca flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt to the wet mixture.
  4. Using your hands (or an electronic whisk if you don’t want to get stuck in), mix your ingredients together till you get a thick doughy mix. (I tend to roll the whole mix into a huge ball at this point)
  5. Mould your cookies by taking a chunk at a time (about 2 inches in size). Roll into a ball in your hands, then flatten with your hands and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  6. Once you’ve moulded all your cookies, place in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Once 15 minutes is up, take out your cookies and rest for about 5 minutes.
  8. Then transfer your cookies to a cookie rack to cool down.
  9. Once cool, you can drizzle some melted chocolate and garnish with shredded coconut.
  10. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Use refined coconut oil if you don’t want an overpowering coconut taste
If you don’t like dark chocolate, simply sub honey for the molasses as this will balance out the richness of the cocoa powder better
