These are very tasty and can become addictive. My friend Paul, also an awesome chef in the kitchen, made these a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t stop eating them. 🙂
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups shredded coconut
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups lightly salted, dry roasted almonds, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Fold in the coconut, chocolate chips and almonds and stir until just incorporated.
Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until set.
