Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

Sometimes I get one of these crazy ideas of eating healthy and I say goodbye to chocolate (and everything else that is good in this world). Fortunately that never lasts good and I’m back to baking chocolately, caramelly, brown buttery treats within a week.

That being said, I do enjoy something slightly healthier from time to time. There are oats in these cookies, so they have to be healthier, right? Please, tell me I’m right.

Apart from oats, there is also coconut in them, which brings a more interesting taste to the usually plain-tasting oatmeal cookies. They have a nice chewiness about them and they are quite buttery.

Additionally, they are very easy to make. So if you feel like pretending to be healthy with me, go on and make these.

It’s not a big recipe, but it can be easily doubled if you’d like more cookies.
