Gut Replenish Choc Cookies

Recipe courtesy of Gene Schesser.


  • 1 cup creamy almond butter: Make sure it's the natural kind with only almonds as the ingredients!

  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal

  • 6 tbsp water
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tbsp Gut Replenish powder: This is from Edible Beauty - It tastes delish and has amazing ingredients!

  • 1/4 cup almond meal

  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/3 cup vegan dark choc chips


How to make:

  1. Create the 'flaxseed eggs' by mixing 2 tbsp of ground flaxseed with 6 tbsp of water. Let the mixture set in the fridge for 15 minutes. 
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper

  3. In a medium bowl, combine almond butter, coconut sugar, coconut oil, vanilla and flaxseed mix. Whisk until smooth.

  4. Add in the cocoa powder, almond meal, baking soda, salt and Gut Replenish powder. Mix until there are no lumps. Fold through the choc chips.

  5. Place the mixture in the fridge for 5-10 minutes until set and able to pick up and mould without being too sticky.

  6. While the mixture is setting preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  7. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, place small balls of the mixture on the baking paper around 3 inches apart. Flatten with the palm of your hand until an inch thick. Add extra choc chips on top if you like!

  8. Bake in the oven for 8 - 10 minute or until lighter and golden in colour.

  9. Cool for 10 minutes before eating and enjoy!



  • The mixture will be sticky before setting in the fridge, make sure you don't skip the setting step.

  • Don't over bake as the cookies will come out dry.

  • Be sure to allow them to cool before eating as this is the step that truly allows them to harden and form into cookies!

Lots of love and happy cookie making!
