Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts and Coconut Shavings

Almond Joys have been my favorite candy bar for so long now that I can’t remember when that even started. But do you know what I would probably love even better? A “Walnut Joy!” πŸ™‚ Chocolate + Coconut + Walnuts!? Yum! This very combination was the inspiration for these cookies.

I was a little hesitant…..coconut flakes in a chocolate chip cookie? Never heard of such a thing! Would it even taste anything like I imagined it would?!

Well, yes my friends, it did! I absolutely loved these! And I am hoping you….my Fiesta Friday friends….will love them too! πŸ™‚

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts and Coconut Shavings

*Created by Lori at creatingbeautyinthekitchen.wordpress.com

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Chopped walnuts (as much or as little as you would like)
  • Shredded, dry coconut (as much or as little as you would like)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all the wet ingredients in one bowl, and the dry in another. When both are mixed well, combine them together.
  • Add in the walnuts and chocolate chips, making sure they are spread throughout.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Try to make each cookie the same size so that they all cook evenly.
  • When putting the dough on the baking sheet, smooch it down a bit, rather than leaving a ball….it cooks better that way.
  • Cook for 7-10 min depending on how you like them.
