Chocolate Coconut Cookies: are they chocolate cookies or oatmeal drop cookies?

Yes, both!

It's a bit of a surprise, isn't it? You expect an oatmeal cookie to be flavored with cinnamon and raisins and nuts.But here oatmeal is mixed in, even though you may not notice it, thanks to the rich cookie dough flavored with melted chocolate rolled in shredded coconut.

So different from the typical oatmeal cookie ... yet so good!

Prep time: 15-20 minutes
Bake time: 9-11 minutes
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies
