If you have noticed a lack of coconut on the blog, it's the fault of my husband. He's not a fan (it's a texture thing, which is why he doesn't mind coconut milk in our curries). So when he went out of town recently, I decided to console myself by putting some coconut in my cookies. Which meant I was eating almost an entire batch of cookies by myself, but that was ok with me! These guys are chewy perfections! I love each little bite of coconut pecan chocolate and oatmeal. Definitely a new favorite!
