Spread a little joy!
Dairy Free, Gluten Free Almond Joys
1 c unsweetened coconut
6-8 tbsp agave
3 tbsp gluten free baking flour
1 tbsp vanilla
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp sea salt
2/3 c dark chocolate (no milk fat)
In a saucepan combine the coconut, flour and salt. Then, in a separate bowl whisk the agave (3 tbsp if you like your candy less sweet and more if you want it sweeter) and the egg whites together. Then slowly add the eggs to the coconut mixture and stir over a low healt. Once the mixture has thickened take it off of the heat and let it cool.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and make sure it is well greased. Create little Almond Joy shaped bars that are just big enough to put one almond on top. You will be able to make about 20 of them out of your mixture. Then bake them for about 10 minutes or until the bottom is just beginning to brown.
After they are cool, melt the chocolate and pour it over the top. Let the chocolate cool and then you are done! You have delicious bite sized sugar free almond joys made right in your own kitchen!
