First, add the chocolate almond butter and the butter to a mixing bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds. This will melt the butter and get the almond butter soft. Mix the softened ingredients together until they’re well combined.

 

Next, add the vanilla extract, confectioners sugar, almond flour, cinnamon and sea salt to the bowl and mix until everything is well combined. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.

Finally, add a piece of parchment paper to a loaf pan, or smaller baking dish. Transfer the cookie dough to the parchment-lined pan and smooth into an even layer. Then, freeze for about an hour. When you’re ready to eat the cookie bars, thaw slightly and cut into bars. For smooth, even bars, use a sharp knife to cut.
