  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 90 g dark chocolate bar chopped into small chunks
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • sea salt flakes for topping


  • In a medium bowl (or a stand mixer), mix together the almond flour, tahini, maple syrup and chocolate pieces. The dough should be thick. If it's not, add a little more almond flour.
  • Mix to ensure everything is coated well and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. This is essential, do not miss this step!
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and preheat the oven to 180 °C.
  • Add the egg and bicarbonate of soda to the dough. Mix together until fully incorporated.
  • Wet your hands and roll dough into balls just a bit larger than a golf ball. You should get about 10-12 cookies.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes. The cookies will still be quite soft. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with sea salt flakes.
  • Let the cookies sit before eating for about 15 minutes.
