Prep time: 60 mins
Cook time: 8 mins
Total time: 68 mins


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c xylitol
  • 1 c roasted almond butter
  • 1 t pure vanilla essence
  • ¼  t salt
  • ¼ c nut dust (or coconut flour / almond flour)
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 slab dark chocolate, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 c chopped nuts (I used almonds)


  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, xylitol, almond butter, vanilla, and salt, mixing until just combined
  3. Stir in the flour and baking powder until a dough begins to form
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts
  5. Roll the dough into heaping tablespoon sized balls. Place each piece of dough onto the prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly using the palm of your hand
  6. Cover the tray with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hourIMG_5502
  7. Bake the biscuits for 8 minutes
  8. Let them cool a bit, then transfer to a rack



This is the greatest recipe I have in my shed, but HELLISHLY pricey!
* I used to have coconut sugar OR xylitol, but I’ve realised coconut sugar is a total NO NO!

    My cookies were a disaster! Maybe 1 cup of macadamia nut butter was too much? I’m not sure. There was nothing biscuity about my batch. Maybe 40min the freezer was a bad idea on my part?
    When they got into the oven they just “melted” together into one large “cake”.

      HI Mpho, I’m so sorry they flopped 😦 Yes, I would definitely stick to freezing them for an hour, it really makes a difference. Was the nut butter you used very oily? Was it just 100% nuts (with no added oil)?

    I am definatly trying this tonight but using mixed chopped nuts. I am combining this with a german recipe i have and cant wait to taste the result. Brown sugar in stead of xilatol also works just as well.
