Almond butter + maple syrup replace butter + sugar in these healthier, flourless chocolate chip cookies from lifestyle expert Tommy DiDario, who covers men's fashion, grooming, travel, health, wellness and fitness for us.
"I like to store these in the refrigerator to keep them a bit firmer," Tommy says. "They are the perfect breakfast cookie to have with your morning coffee or tea."

- 1 cup almond butter
- ¼ cup organic maple syrup
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon organic vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup vegan chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the almond butter, maple syrup, egg, baking soda, vanilla extract and sea salt until a smooth batter forms. Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly dispersed.
Drop 1 ½ tablespoons batter about an inch apart and spaced evenly onto the parchment paper. Bake until golden on top and slightly browned on the bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. For crispier cookies, leave them in a little longer while keeping an eye on them.
Let the cookies cool for 15 minutes.
