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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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 {myrecipedia.blogspot.com} and now I am on a quest to see which one is better! I am sure they are equally sinful.

  3. Yum, I love this flavor combo – cococnut + chocolate + almonds! Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it out. 🙂

  4. These are cookies I have to try. Love trying different cookie recipes and this is one I haven’t tried. They look great.

  5. Ahhh! These were SO good! I love coconut and this was just the right mixture of a traditional cc cookie and something so much more. Loved them!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!
