Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 12 mins
Servings 6 - 8 big cookies



  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice
  • 3 Tbsp mild-tasting olive oil, plus more for greasing the pan - coconut or sunflower oil should also work
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter*
  • 1 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract


  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1.5 oz - 45 grams chocolate, roughly chopped - I used 70% chocolate (can sub chocolate chips)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F / 180 °C.
  • Grease a baking sheet with a little oil.
  • Add all wet ingredients to a small bowl. Whisk until combined and set aside while you prep the rest. Ground flaxseeds will absorb some of the moisture and the mixture might thicken a little.
  • Mix all dry ingredients, except the chocolate, in a medium bowl.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. Gently stir to combine.
  • Add the chocolate chunks and gently mix until the chocolate is evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  • Use your hands to shape the dough into 6 - 8 balls. Flatten the balls just a little with the palm of your hands and place them on the prepared baking sheet leaving 2 to 3 inches (5 – 8 cm) of space between each cookie, they will spread out as they bake!
  • Bake for 12 - 14 minutes or until the edges are starting to slightly brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes. They will still be soft, but they’ll become firmer as they cool down. After 10 minutes you can transfer them to a rack.
  • Enjoy!


*If you don’t have almond butter you can try using tahini or cashew butter.
