    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 and prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Toast almond and coconut (not together) and chop almonds once cooled. To toast almonds, I bake at 350 for 10 minutes until fragrant. To toast coconut, I use a small skillet on medium heat and shake until coconut is golden brown (removed quickly as unsweetened coconut goes from done to burnt very fast).
    3. 3
      Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Using stand mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
    5. 5
      Continuing to run mixer on medium, add egg, egg whites and vanilla, one at a time and mix until combined.
    6. 6
      With your mixer turned to low, add dry ingredients until flour is incorporated.
    7. 7
      Stir in mini-chocolate chips, toasted coconut and toasted chopped almonds.
    8. 8
      Drop with a cookie scoop (1.5T) onto cookie sheet.
    9. 9
      Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown on edges.
    10. 10
      Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

      My sister made these cookies and brought them for Christmas dessert, I begged for the recipe. I also kept what she brought and have been munching on them all afternoon..(shame on me) Delish..I will be making these as soon as I get the ingredients.

      My family thought these were just ok. They did not spread out at all for me. I would recommend flattening them before putting them in the oven.
