Tribal Moon Cacao Cookies with Sea Salt

Sweet, but not too sweet. Sprinkling sea salt over these delicious cacao cookies makes a great difference. This easy-to-make cookie recipe is perfect for afternoon snacks or movie night treats. 


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of Tribal Moon Cacao
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of sea salt for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Tribal Moon-infused coffee, optional
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs for extra flavor


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, Tribal Moon Cacao, baking soda, and salt. Whisk and set aside. 
  2. In a separate bowl, combine coconut oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and coffee. Beat the mixture for about 2 minutes or until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add the flour mixture into the wet mix until well combined. Fold the cacao nibs.
  4. Use a scoop to roll the batter into small cookies and place it on a baking sheet. Flatten it slightly with the palm of your hand. 
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with sea salt immediately. 
  6. Let the cookie cool down for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. 


Depending on what type of recipe you are creating, we always try and prepare cacao in the easiest possible way with the greatest amount of care. So here are a few helpful hints on how to do that.

  • If you need the cacao in more of a powder-type form for your recipe, just blitz larger chunks of Tribal Moon Cacao in a Nutri-Bullet, Thermomix, or Food Processor for 10 seconds. Then it is all ready to go without needing to chop or grate it. Easy. 😊
  • If you need to turn your cacao into more of a liquid type of consistency, simply pour boiling water into a pot with the cacao and stir over heat until it melts. NEVER LEAVE THE CACAO as it begins to get hot. If it starts to steam, that is as hot as you want to get. Try to NEVER RAISE the temperature of the cacao above 87 Degrees Celsius as it will lose some of its medicinal qualities.
  • Have fun
