Almond Joy Cookies (no Sweetened condensed milk!)

Almond Joy Cookies (no Sweetened condensed milk!)


I love coconut and chocolate. SO much. I also love almond flavoring in my cookies. This cookies combine all three into an amazing little cookie! They are shockingly good.

I use a 1″ cookie scoop to portion out the balls.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp coconut extract if you don’t have it, you can leave it out
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp corn startch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1 cup slivered almonds or crush whole almonds
  • 1 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, cream the butter, sugars, egg, and extracts.
  • In a second bowl, combine the flour, corn starch, backing soda, and salt.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Add the coconut, chocolate chips, and almonds.  Mix.
  • With a 1 inch cookie scoop, portion out balls of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat.  It should fit 15 balls per sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until just lightly browned around the bottom.  Allow to cool on the sheet about 5-10 minutes, then finish cooling on a cooling rack.
  • These will not be crumbly if allowed to cool fully before serving.  They will keep in an airtight container for about a week, and will freeze for up to 6 months.  This recipe doubles just fine.
