Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium size mixing bowl, stir together almond butter and egg until well combined.
Stir in the sugar, baking soda, vanilla and salt. Add in the chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on baking sheet. Flatten with a fork and sprinkle tops with remaining sugar.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, until set in the center. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet before removing.
