Meanwhile in a small sauce pan, heat almond butter, maple syrup substitute, coconut oil, brown sugar substitute and cinnamon until the coconut oil is melted. Stir to combine everything.

Beat the egg in a small bowl, and pour over the nut mixture. Mix in the almond butter mixture and coat to combine. Transfer to the prepared baking pan, and use parchment paper to press down. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
