Recipe

It has been forever since I shared a desert recipe. To be honest, although I love sweets when I am out to dinner, I rarely have dessert at home. If I do it is usually something boring like fruit and yogurt or 1 piece of frozen chocolate. However every once in awhile I come across a recipe that screams out to try. This was one of those recipes. With a base of almond meal, dark chocolate, and coconut – I knew I would instantly love this cookie. It’s hearty, just sweet enough, and I am in love with the nutty almond flavor paired with coconut. Delish.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix together the almond meal, chocolate coconut, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Set aside.
  3. Add the egg to a stand mixer and beat until fluffy and about doubled in size. You can also do this by hand or with a hand beater. Add the melted butter and vanilla. Slowly add the almond meal mixture and mix until just combined. It will be a bit sticky.
  4. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment and roll dough into one inch balls. Place on cookie sheet and slightly press down to flatten a bit.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookie is form and bottoms are browned but not burnt.

    If you have the WW Smart Points to spare, these are the most delicious cookies ever. We didn't have coconut so substituted Rice Crisp cereal instead. Weird substitution I know but it worked very well and they are yummy! The ingredient list says you need Baking Powder but the directions say add "Baking Soda" so I was confused. I ended up using Baking Powder. If Kristen can clear that up, I'd be grateful.
