Servings 8 cookies
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
fridge time 1 hr


  • Chopping Board
  • Chopping Knife
  • Mixing Bowl x 2
  • Measuring utensils to measure out: tsp, tbsp, 1/2 cup, 3/4 cup, 1 cup and 1/3 cup
  • Oven


  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 flax egg (see notes)
  • 1 tbsp plant milk (almond, macadamia etc)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cardamon
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup chili chocolate (can use plain chocolate chips)


  • Mix all wet ingredients together (coconut oil, maple syrup, milk, vanilla essence, flax egg) until smooth using a whisk.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Roughly chop your chili chocolate and fold into the mixture.
  • Put your mixture in the fridge for half an hour to avoid the cookies spreading too much.
  • After the cookies have been in the fridge for half an hour preheat your oven to 180°C (160 fanforced).
  • Roll tablespoons of cookie mixture into balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Go along with a teaspoon and press them down a little so they are no longer round.
  • Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until the edges start to brown up a little. They will be very soft when you take them out of the oven so it's best to let them cool down before you eat them.


How to make a flax egg: 


To make a flax egg all you have to do is combine 1 tbsp of flaxseed meal and 2 tbsp’s of water in a small cup or bowl and let it sit out for about a minute to thicken. Flax egg is a replacement of a real egg and helps to hold the cookies together.
