2.  Beat or mix together the almond and coconut sugar until well-combined.  Add in the egg and vanilla and combine.


3.  Add in the cocoa powder, protein, baking soda and salt.  The mixture will be thick, so you might want to mix with your hands.

Notes


Be sure to use a thick almond butter, or they may spread too much while cooking.


Place cookies in the freezer for 15 min before baking to prevent the cookies from spreading too much.
