You know you’re loved when more than one person bakes something for you with your favorite ingredient. Take, for example, my mother-in-law. She loves coconut. Around Christmastime her friend Mavis made her Coconut and Almond Toffee and Coconut Macaroons (which were both seriously delicious, by the way). Then I also made these cookies with coconut in them to bring to Christmas because I know how much she loves coconut. Hopefully she wasn’t coconut-ed out!
I ended up loving these Oatmeal Coconut and Cinnamon Chip Cookies and had a hard time keeping myself away from them! And I didn’t even think I liked coconut that much… They were chewy on the outside, and buttery and soft in the middle. I loved the chew from the coconut and oatmeal, and the coconut chips studded throughout gave them a little extra sweetness and spice. They might look like your typical oatmeal cookie at first glance, but I promise you they are much more than that.
Oh and if anyone’s wondering, my favorite ingredient is chocolate.
