  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the collagen powder, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine chilled grass-fed butter, almond butter, egg, vanilla extract, and coconut sugar.
  3. Add the medium bowl of dry ingredients to the large bowl of wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least an hour, or until the dough is firm.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Roll the dough into 9 large or 16 small balls. Place 4” apart on the prepared baking sheet and press the cookies down lightly with the palm of your hand.
  8. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes depending on the size of your cookies, or until the surface of the cookie no longer appears wet. They’ll be soft but will continue to firm up as they sit.
