Chocolate, almonds and coconut, what is not to love? Put them all together in a cookie that gives you all three in one big bite. I call them Almond Joy Cookies, and I know there are a lot of recipes for them out there, but there isn't one like this one. I know because I created it. Enjoy!

P.S.: This recipe is gluten free; however, you may substitute regular wheat flour if you wish.
