So I made these financiers thinking about my daughter's preference. She is practically a chocoholic and she likes coconut flavor. I wasn't really sure if coconut flakes and chocolate work that well together, but I realized that Mounds is tasty and that is only candy bar that I actually like. So I went ahead to try.
I am new to baking so I won't go into the details of how they are cooked. But these were really great! Very rich in Chocolate flavor.
I replaced 50% of almond powder with coconut flakes. And I also omitted 1 table spoon of butter and used 2 table spoon of milk chocolate. I reduced amount of flour and replaced with cocoa powder.
She grabbed one as soon as she came home. She ate one, two, three..... OK, too much. But I was happy that she liked these.
