Units Scale


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. Into a large bowl add in the melted browned coconut butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar, aquafaba and vanilla, and stir until combined. 
  3. Add in the almond flour, spelt flour, corn starch, baking soda and baking powder and fold it into the wet ingredients until just combined. Then fold in chocolate chips (this will finish off mixing the dry ingredients in and prevent over mixing).
  4. Use a medium cookie scoop and portion out around 16 servings onto a cookie baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Rotate the tray at 6 minutes to encourage even baking. 
  6. Let them cool on the tray for 5 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack and let them cool for another 8-10 minutes before eating.
