Almond Joy Cookies

1/2 c. unsalted butter {soft}
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. flour {whole wheat white}
1/4 c. ground flaxseed
1 c. old fashioned oats {or quick}
1/4 c. almond meal
1/4 c. finely ground coconut {unsweetened}

1 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Cream butter, sugars, egg, vanilla. Scrape and mix well. On stir speed, add dry ingredients. Use a cookie scoop or drop by rounded tablespoon on parchment paper or silpat.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

*Note: I like to sneak in all kinds of good grains in my cookies, thus the flaxseed and oats. You can use whatever you have on hand or add more almond meal and coconut to get more of an almond joy taste!
