1 cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut
½ cups Plus 3 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spread almonds & coconut evenly on a large rimmed baking pan. Toast in the oven for about 7-8 minutes, turning/tossing once halfway through, until golden brown and fragrant. Reduce heat to 325ºF.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together cocoa (1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons total), powdered sugar, and salt. Continue whisking while adding egg whites and vanilla extract, mixing until just moistened. Don’t overwhisk or the eggs will stiffen. Stir in almonds, coconut, and chocolate chips.

4. Bake for 14-16 minutes, turning pans and shifting the top to bottom rack halfway through. Cookies are finished when tops are shiny and cracked. Cool for a minute or two, then slide the cookies off the pans and allow to cool completely before serving.
