Cupcakes have been taking over my life.  Usually they just take over the kitchen, but in my new apartment at college, the best lighting is in my room, so now they have taken over my bedroom too! Lizzy vs. Cupcakes….It really brings a whole new meaning to Cupcake Wars.[end-story]

    I made these (twice in a row – they were gobbled up so fast) and they were so delicious! the second time I made them I used coconut oil in place of the butter and they were amazing! I eliminated the nuts, to make them ‘school friendly’ and used 1 cup whole wheat flour & 1 cup white. Thanks for a great ‘keeper’ recipe!! Awesome site! 🙂

      I just found this recipe and saw your comment about using
      coconut oil in place of butter. Did you use 1 cup of coconut oil? I just bought the C oil for the first time yesterday but not really sure how to use it. I just love coconut!

      Super excited to try these!

    I made these and then I skipped eating dinner because I only had an appetite for these cookies. I added white chocolate chips as well. Seriously, some of the best cookies I’ve ever had.

    […] for me. The oatmeal is what really makes this one stand out, and I’ve since moved on to coconut chocolate chip cookies with a hint of oatmeal as […]

    Just made these – I’ve been looking for a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie that doesn’t go all flat….and these are FANTASTIC. I made them just as written, coconut and all. I don’t, however, use the icky stuff from the grocery store. A really nice mild coconut flavor – and in a wonderful cookie base. Great recipe!!

    Do you use sweetened & shredded coconut or all-natural unsweetened coconut flakes?

    These cookies were amazing! I couldn’t find extra dark chocolate but they were delicious just with the regular dark chocolate. I use unsweetened coconut and they were Yumoo

    My husband and I loved these cookies! What I really loved about them is that they cleaned out my pantry. I have been needing to use the coconut, pecans, and chocolate chips, dark and milk, that have been in there for a bit of time. Thanks for creating such delicious cookies with so many flavors that play well together.
