Coco-Oat Cookies are exactly what they sound like. Coconut and Oats. Pure heaven! I make these amazing Blueberry Bars, which I will eventually get on here, and the base of the bar is this amazing coconut and oat dough. I could eat the whole bowl of dough without even blinking. It’s a problem I have. I LOVE cookie dough! I decided to try to make the bar recipe into a recipe that would make the perfect cookie. After taste testing the dough, I knew these would be wonderful! The coconut and oats give these cookie its soft and chewy texture and are filled with sweet goodness from the combination of the sweetened coconut and brown sugar. It is definitely a holiday cookie everyone will enjoy. Since the Holiday’s are coming up, it is time for me to start whipping out as many cookie recipes as I can possibly manage. Soon my blog will be filled with all my favorite and tastefully scrumptious cookie recipes.
