How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 325°. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond meal, sugar, sliced almonds, arrowroot, baking soda and salt. Add the coconut oil, applesauce, almond extract and cocoa nibs and stir with a rubber spatula until fully incorporated.
With a 1 tablespoon-size cookie scoop, drop the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, about 3 inches apart. Bake for 9 minutes, or until the edges and centers are browned and crisp. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.
