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.

How To Make bonnie's almond joy cookies--gluten-free

  • 1
    Assemble all ingredients. Bring egg and molasses and almond butter to room temperature. I use air baking pans with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2
    Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
  • 3
    Note. Do not skip the step of pulsing the sugar to powder.
  • 4
    Mix the wet ingredients in a small bowl: Combine the melted warm butter with the almond butter and molasses, and stir until well mixed, then add the vanilla and egg white.
  • 5
    Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients, and mix well by hand with a spatula.
  • 6
    Use a one-inch scoop for scooping the dough into your hand.
  • 7
    Make a ball by rolling it in your hand. Tip: Give it a couple of squeezes, and it sticks together and helps make forming the ball easier.
  • 8
    Press an almond in the center of each cookie.
  • 9
    Place the cookies on the parchment paper about 1 1/2 inches apart.
  • 10
    Bake at 350 degrees 10 to 12 minutes, until edges start to brown. Do not overcook.
