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.

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.
