  1. In a medium bowl, combine the almond butter and coconut oil and blend well.
  2. Add the coconut milk, coconut flavored syrup and eggs, blending until smooth. Stir in the baking powder, salt, sweetener, dried coconut and flax meal until a stiff dough forms.
  3. Roll the dough into 18 one inch balls and place on a greased or parchment covered cookie sheet. Press lightly on each ball to make a dent.
  4. Chop your chocolate and place a piece onto each cookie and top with an almond.
  5. Bake in a preheated 375 degree (F) oven for 20 minutes until browned and slightly puffed. Let cool and enjoy!


If you don’t have sugar free coconut flavored syrup, you can omit it & increase the sweetener to 3 Tbsp and your coconut milk to 1/3 cup.
