Cacao Nib Walnut Cookies


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Set your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Next, add the wet ingredients: melted coconut oil, maple syrup (or honey), and vanilla extract. Mix everything together until a dough forms.

Time for the chocolatey and nutty goodness! Fold in the cacao nibs and chopped walnuts, making sure they’re evenly distributed throughout the dough. Shape your cookies! Take small portions of dough and roll them into balls. Leave some space between each ball on the baking sheet. Flatten it out! Use a fork to gently press down on each cookie ball, giving them their classic cookie shape.

Bake time! Pop those cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Look for golden brown edges – that’s your cue!

Let them cool: Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy! Now comes the best part – devour your healthy cacao nib and walnut cookies! Store any leftovers in an airtight container for later snacking.

Feel free to get creative! Adjust the sweetness with more or less maple syrup (or honey), or add other ingredients like dried fruit or chocolate chips to customize your cookies to your taste.
