Almond Joy Cookies

I made these cookies twice last week! They are so good. Before going vegan almond joy candy bars were my favorite. These cookies are chewy and delicious and fill my chocolate, coconut and almond cravings perfectly. Here is what you need:

2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup vegetable shortening 
1/2 cup Earth Balance or your favorite non-dairy butter substitute
1 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup of sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
3tsp egg replacer powder mixed with 6 TBS water
1 cup chocolate chips 
1/2 cup of almonds, chopped
1/2 cup almonds whole

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Str together the flour, cocoa powder, coconut, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside.

In another bowl beat together Earth Balance, shortening, sugar, vanilla and egg replacer powder mixture. 

Add in the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and chopped almonds.

Form cookies on the sheet and one whole almond on top of each cookie. Bake 7 minutes, remove from heat and cool. Enjoy

Makes about 20 cookies
