Like an Almond Joy Cookie

img_0704

With coconut, almonds, and chocolate, it’s like an Almond Joy. But a cookie.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup firm coconut oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped almonds

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 325º F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.

Cream together the coconut oil and sugar until light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Mix in the egg and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into the shortening and sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, almonds, and coconut flakes.

Drop cookie dough by the tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1½-inches between each cookie. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cookies have turned lightly brown and are set. Allow to cool completely.
