Coconut-Almond Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

"If you like the classic chocolate no-bake cookies, these might be right up your alley. These cookies are loaded with coconut and oatmeal and held together with a mixture of fudgy, decadent chocolate and almond butter. If you prefer a stronger almond flavor, feel free to substitute almond extract in place of the vanilla extract. Yummy, chewy and rich--these cookies beg to be paired with a tall glass of ice-cold milk. Yum!"

Ready In:
36 cookies




  • In a large saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa and salt. Then stir in milk.
  • Cut butter into 1 tbs. chunks and add it to the saucepan as well as the corn syrup. Place saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until mixture reaches a slow-rolling boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly as to avoid burning on the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove pan from heat. Stir in almond butter and vanilla until smooth.
  • Stir in oatmeal and coconut until thoroughly incorporated, and mixture begins to stiffen.
  • Immediately drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour to ensure cookies harden properly.
  • Store in an air-tight container and enjoy!

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
