  • Cooling Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 27 minutes


For the Salted Caramel:

  • ¼ cup cashew butter
  • ¼ cup date syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

For the Cookies:

  • 1 cup Bake Believe® Dark Chocolate Baking Chips
  • ½ cup ghee, softened
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  1. To make the caramel: In a food processor or high speed blender, combine cashew butter, date syrup, coconut cream, and salt. Process until smooth. Set aside.
  2. To make the cookies: Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat ghee and sugar on medium speed 1-2 minutes, until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat until just combined.
  4. Add almond flour, salt, and baking soda and beat 1 minute, until dough forms.
  5. Add dark chocolate baking chips and gently fold into dough. Drizzle in the caramel, and stir to distribute, keeping swirls visible. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Form dough into 12 balls, about 2-3 tablespoons per ball. Set on prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches in between each cookie. Gently press to flatten each cookie to about 1 inch thick.
  7. Transfer baking sheets to oven and bake 10-12 minutes, swapping racks halfway through, until golden.
  8. Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for 30 minutes, or until completely cool. Enjoy.
