How to Make This Healthy Cookie Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl, whisk together nut butter, almond flour, granulated Swerve, and brown Swerve until combined. Add in egg, baking soda, vanilla extract, and sea salt and whisk. Fold in chocolate chips with a spoon until combined. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Scoop dough into 2 tbsp. balls, placing them 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Flatten slightly with the back of a clean glass cup, and sprinkle each a few flakes of sea salt (optional). Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Allow cookies to cool on the sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
