  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon Paleo flour blend

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg, almond butter and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, add in the remaining dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and mix until well-combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until well-incorporated, then fold in the chocolate chips.
