    Everybody in my family loved these cookies - and ive tried so many recipes - with this being the only recipe my blended family of 6 all agree are so goood!  -  04 Oct 2014


    These cookies were fabulous. I was a bit worried when I was putting them on the pan as I thought they would be pretty runny and flat. The consistency was amazing. I didn't include the pecans because I'm not a fan of nuts in cookies, but I just put a bit more oatmeal. Crispy on the outside, and chewy on the inside, as all cookies should be. Amazing. Will definitely be making these again!  -  29 Sep 2012


    Just used this recipe and its wonderful! I don't know why but it was hard to find a good recipe for chewy cookies that call for oats and coconut. I added 4 tablespoons of cocoa, and really creamed the mixture until it resembled frosting before stirring in the chunky ingredients. Makes about 45 cookies.  -  02 Jan 2012
