Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

CoconutOatmealCookies

These cookies are one of my new favorites!  If you love a good chewy oatmeal cookie as well as coconut, these things are awesome!  A new favorite for the whole family, even for my husband, who prefers chocolate over oatmeal any day.  Though, I bet they would be pretty tasty with chocolate chips in them as well…or craisins and white chocolate chips!

Drop by spoon full on ungreased cookie sheet.  I like to use my large ice cream scoop, as it seems to make the perfect sized cookie.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.

ENJOY!
