Coconut, Chocolate Chip and Almond Cookies

Coconut, Chocolate Chip and Almond Cookies

It was a rainy day and I wasn’t looking forward to another game of Candyland so I suggested making cookies. My children happily agreed and away we went. The coconut, chocolate chip and almond combination were fantastic together – they reminded me of an Almond Joy candy bar. These cookies were gooey, soft, sweet, salty and crunchy. I was in heaven, my children, my husband and my neighbor all loved them too. Don’t forget to dip them in ice cold milk but I must warn you – they are addictive! Thanks to my neighbor, Cheryl, who just gave me a wonderful cookie recipe book… it inspired me to create these cookies.

    Oooh, I’m on an almond kick right now. A cookie that reminds you of an almond joy candy bar … works for me! These cookies look great, and dunking one in milk would be way better than playing the 100th game of candyland. Although if your children are like mine, they would want to both eat the cookies and play the game! Great cookie!

    These look DELIGHTFUL and so, so tasty. I love coconut! And Almond Joy is one of my faves. I just made a different coconut choc chip cookie recipe from my friend’s blog {} and now I am on a quest to see which one is better! I am sure they are equally sinful.

    These cookies are so yummy!!! however, instead of using chocolate chips, we substituted 1 1/2 cups of chopped dried apricots. SO YUMMY! thankyou so much for this recipe! the apricots make for a nice chewy consistancy.

    I made these and they were good…but needed more flour!
    Next time, I am adding 1 to 1/2 cups for flour.
    The ones I made spread too much and did not cook evenly.

    […] They chose to make cookies with coconut, white chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips. They used this recipe and just substituted 1/2 cup of chocolate chips for white chocolate chips and omitted the almonds. […]

    Hi. I just made these today and they didn’t quite look like yours. They were much drier.. almost like granola.. when I finished the dough. I had to roll them and flatten them into patties to bake them. Just want to confirm that the recipe uses 1 stick of butter and two eggs? Thanks!

    I made about 24… you can make more or less depending on the size you make them. I hope this helps.
