  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Add the egg, ghee, pure maple syrup, almond butter, and vanilla extract to a stand mixer. Fit the stand mixer with the paddle attachment and beat until mixture is completely creamy and there are no visible chunks of ghee.

  3. Add the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, and sea salt and mix until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough at least 1 hour.

  4. Drop spoonfuls of dough on a baking sheet according to the size of cookies you like. I enjoy making mine fairly large.

  5. Bake for 8 to 15 minutes, depending on your desired level of chewiness or crunch. For me, 11 to 12 minutes is the sweet spot of ultimate goo-to-crunch. Allow cookies to sit 5 minutes before using a spatula to remove them from the baking sheet.

Recipe Notes

*You can also chop up a dark chocolate bar, which in my opinion makes the cookies even more over-the-top delicious
