  1. Place the melted coconut oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the coconut sugar and maple syrup and whisk to combine.
  2. Next, add the egg, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar to the coconut oil/sugar mixture. Whisk well to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, flaxseed meal, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the coconut oil mixture.
  4. Finally, stir in the chopped chocolate until it is evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  5. Cover the cookie dough tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours. You can chill the cookie dough for up to 48 hours.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Using a large cookie scoop, drop cookie dough balls on parchment lined baking sheets. The cookies spread a bit, so make sure that you leave at least 3 inches between each cookie and place no more than 5 cookies on each baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes.
  7. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for at least 10-15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. (The cookies will be very soft when they first come out of the oven.)
  8. Sprinkle flaked sea salt over the cookies and enjoy!
