Almond Joy Cookies – Just 4 Ingredients!

Almond Joy cookies are a delightful treat inspired by the popular Almond Joy candy bar. These cookies are loaded with coconut, chocolate chips, and almonds, making them a perfect combination of sweet, chewy, and crunchy.

To make Almond Joy cookies, start by creaming together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.

Next, fold in sweetened shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and chopped almonds until evenly distributed throughout the dough. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and press a whole almond into the top of each cookie.

Bake the cookies in a preheated oven until they are golden brown around the edges, about 10-12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cookies are cool, you can drizzle them with melted chocolate for an extra decadent touch, if desired. These cookies are perfect for enjoying with a glass of milk or sharing with friends and family. They’re sure to be a hit with anyone who loves the classic combination of chocolate, coconut, and almonds.

These easy Almond Joy Cookies take just four ingredients and don’t even require a mixer! No beating, no chilling, just mix ’em up and throw ’em in the oven EASY! You’re going to love these ooey gooey fabulous cookies!
