4-Ingredient Almond Joy™ Cookies
These chocolatey, coco-nutty treats are a joy to eat AND make, since they use only 4 (count ’em) ingredients. Don’t have any eggs, butter, or flour? You don’t need them!
Which means you can whip up a batch late at night when you need something sweet, then destroy the evidence before anyone wakes up in the morning. We might need to apologize in advance for this recipe, because it leaves you with absolutely no excuse not to bake cookies right this minute.
We call this an “on a whim” recipe, because it requires basically zero planning ahead — if you bake at all, there’s a good chance that you already have everything you need to make these in your pantry right now. You know, that can of sweetened condensed milk left over from the holidays, those almonds from when you made granola bars, that lonely bag of shredded coconut, and those chocolate chips that you keep on hand “for emergencies”. Put them all together, and you have irresistible little cookies that we’ll take over the candy bar any day.
Fans of coconut macaroons or magic cookie bars are in for a real treat. This is a simplified combo of the two, and really proves that sometimes simpler is better. With their toasty golden edges, gooey melted chocolate, and crunchy almonds, these flourless, eggless, and gluten-free treats didn’t hang around the TipHero kitchen for long.
