Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies



I had 2 groups of people recently staying for several days and two (one from each group) was gluten free, AND dairy and egg free.

I’ve got GF and DF pancakes down to a fine art. People always ask for seconds, but I wanted to do some baking for them too.

I came upon an oatmeal recipe I liked the look of (probably because it had coconut in it) so I set about making the cookies.

When I had the cookie dough all ready to measure out onto the baking tray I had a dizzy moment and threw a generous handful of chocolate chips into the batter.

Oh wow.

These little guys are the bomb. Everyone loved them. And recently I put some out for some non-GF guests and the wife suggested that I make them and give them to guests as little gifts. They’re that good. Even Jim, the cookie monster (but only chocolate chip cookies) asked me to please hide them!
