Bulk food and co-ops have been synonymous since the first modern food co-op was created in the late 18th century. But it's not just tradition. Bulk food and products represent one of the best ways to cut unnecessary waste. Buying bulk means you purchase amounts that are right for you, not portions determined by the producer. And when you bring in your reusable container you're saving money by not paying for packaging, as well as cutting waste.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine egg, coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Next add in almond flour, coconut flour, and baking soda, mixing well to combine. Fold in dark chocolate chunks. You may need to use your hands to moisten the dough so that it sticks together well.
Use a cookie scoop or large tablespoon to drop dough onto ungreased baking sheet. Gently flatten the dough with your hand. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden brown. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finishing cooling. Makes 12 cookies.
