This combination of chocolate chips, coconut, and oatmeal makes a cookie that will make you say yum.
When you're not sure whether you want a chocolate chip cookie or an oatmeal cookie, why not combine the two?
This is a simple drop cookie that you can easily customize. Choose the chocolate chips you like best. Milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate chips will each add a burst of flavor.
I choose to use unsweetened coconut flakes in this cookie but you can use sweetened coconut if you want additional sweetness. The coconut adds a yummy chewiness to the cookie.
The bake time for the cookie will vary with the size of your cookies and your oven. I like to use a scoop for uniform cookies that are about three inches in size. Start by checking your cookies at ten minutes of baking time. Mine take fourteen minutes in my oven.
