I chose this recipe because I love coconut , chocolate, and almonds! They are chewy and quite tasty if I do say so myself! Although the recipe didn’t say, I whipped the egg whites to a frothy mixture before adding to the other ingredients. I think you could toast the coconut beforehand if you wanted more of a crunchy texture. Recipe says these will freeze well if not dipped.
