Makes 18 Servings
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the coconut, almond meal, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and mix well until combined.
In another bowl, stir together the rice syrup, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add the wet mixture and the chocolate chips (if using) to the dry mixture and mix until combined.
Use a small cookie scoop to scoop 1-tablespoon portions of the batter onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14 minutes, until set to the touch (they will still be a little soft inside).
Let cool on the baking sheet for a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Optional: Melt chocolate chips and drizzle chocolate on top.
