Number of Servings: 48


    2/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened (see Tips)
    1/3 cup canola oil
    1 large egg
    1 tablespoon milk
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons melted semisweet chocolate chips (see Tips)
    3 tablespoons toasted coconut (see Tips)
    48 sliced almonds


Preheat oven to 375F. Coat a 15-by-10-inch baking sheet with 1-inch sides with cooking spray.

Beat sugar, butter, oil, egg, milk and almond extract in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

Stir in all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. (It will be a soft dough.)

Spread the dough into the prepared baking pan in a thin layer.

Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Cut into 48 bars.

Decorate each bar with a drizzle of melted chocolate, a sprinkle of toasted coconut and an almond slice

    Portion control with these is VERY hard! They are crispy and feel light. I found that following the recipe, I tasted mostly the almond flavoring in the cookie and not enough coconut and chocolate. Still very good. - 2/28/11
