Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Whisk together all wet ingredients until well combined.
Add in the dry ingredients, making sure to spoon and level the flours. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop the dough and add to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press the tops lightly to flatten with your fingers. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. They will continue to harden as they cool. As soon as they come out of the oven, I like so sprinkle on chopped up chocolate chips which will melt right on top as they cool. Not necessary, I just like the way it looks! I also always use a round cookie cutter to scoot around the edges of the cookie and shape it into a perfect circle.
Sprinkle with salt flakes & enjoy!
You can use any nut butter you like for this recipe, I have tested with almond and cashew butter, but peanut or sunflower seed butter will also work! Just make sure whatever you use is on the runny side.
Since these cookies only have one egg, it's pretty safe to use an egg replacer without problem. They might be a bit more crumbly than usual, so definitely let them cool before eating to ensure the structure can set. Since there is already a bit of applesauce in these, I'd suggest subbing the egg for 3 1/2 more tablespoons of apple sauce, so you'll use 5 1/2 in total.
