Looks messy, is messy but oh will your belly do a happy dance with one bite of these bars.  Use the ingredients to make either drop cookies or a bar like I made.  If making a bar, coat the top with the extra chocolate and coconut !!!
Ingredients
  • ½ c. Unsalted Butter, softened
  • ¾ c. Almond Butter
  • ½ c. Sugar
  • ½ c. Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1½ c. All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp. Kosher Salt
  • ½ c. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • ½ c. Whole Almonds, ground ( I ground coconut flavor almonds)
  • 2 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cream butter, almond butter, and sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, beat until well-incorporated. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed butters and sugars and mix on a low speed until just combined. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

Press down the batter into a greased 9×13 baking pan.  Top with the chocolate chips and coconut. Bake until lightly golden around the edges but still quite soft in the center, 12-14 minutes.

Spread the chocolate and coconut to make it look like frosting.  Put back into the oven for 5 more minutes.

Allow to cool completely before cutting up into squares !
