Certain cookie recipes call for pieces of Almond Joy candy bars. One example is the recipe for Coconutty Oatmeal Almond Joy Cookies from the blog Sweet Treats More.
To make Coconutty Oatmeal Almond Joy Cookies, beat 1/2 cup melted coconut oil, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar until the mixture is creamy. Mix in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. In a different bowl, mix 1 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats. Stir these dry ingredients into the oil mixture. Mix 1/2 cup of chocolates and 8 to 9 chopped miniature Almond Joy bars into the dough. Spoon the dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper and bake the cookies for 9 to 11 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
