Can we all agree on something? Life is better with chocolate, and even better with coconut. These Almond Joy Cookies combine the two in a yummy 4-ingredient recipe that’s ready in 20 minutes flat.
Yes, you can always resort to Almond Joy and coconut macaroons waiting for you in the supermarket checkout. But these homemade cookies are so much better and fresher tasting. Like Almond Joy cookies times ten!
These cookies are gluten-free and only require 4 ingredients: coconut, almond flour, chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Almond flour is simply pulverized almonds, and you can find it in supermarkets or online. Or you can put some almonds in the blender yourself!

- Replace the sweetened condensed milk with coconut cream
- Use vegan dark chocolate chips
