Everyone loves cookies! And these Almond Coconut Chocolate cookies are no exception. I love how easy they are to make. And who doesn’t like that!? These cookies remind me of coconut macaroons, except they are not as coconut-y.
They also happen to be:
And can easily be made dairy-free!
As you may know, I love chocolate, and adding it to these cookies made them even better! But how can you go wrong with chocolate, right? You can also sprinkle sea salt on top instead of the almond because chocolate and sea salt work together so well.
Now, let me tell you how easy they are to make!
All you have to do is mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the egg till frothy, add the vanilla, maple syrup, and melted ghee (or butter, coconut oil). And then combine the two mixtures together. That’s pretty much all to it!
Have your baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I like using a cookie scoop to have the same size cookies and to make sure they are baking evenly. You can definitely use a spoon, just make sure they don’t differ too much in size. The size of the cookie scoop I used is 1.5 inches in diameter and the size of the cookies after baking is about 2 inches.
You don’t have to leave too much space in between the cookies, because they won’t spread, you can have them pretty close together. Press them a little, then garnish them with almonds, sprinkle them with sea salt, or just leave them as it is. Bake them at 350 for 18-20min.
Depending on your oven, time can vary but don’t leave them for more than 20min. or they can become dry. Let them cool on a cooling rack and enjoy them with your favorite hot drink. I also really like to eat them with yogurt. It’s delicious!
