Despite being totally off schedule, being away from Gary and Jax we are doing good. Really excited to fly out there for good. We are counting down the days. Madison has one more day of daycare left and then she has a doctors appointment on Friday. Then it is just playing until we fly out the following week.

When we were eating these cookies we noticed something about them.

Not only were they extra chewy and delicious, they reminded us of something. It took us awhile to put a finger on what exactly.

Then boom! It hit us. These cinnamon coconut cookies taste just like the classic oatmeal raisin cookies but minus the raisins and oatmeal. We found this to be pretty funny.

Awesome idea! I just made a batch and I had a really hard time getting it to stick together. So I ended up adding about a tablespoon of melted coconut oil. They came out great and are delicious. I would make these again, but I think it needs just a little pinch of salt.

Sea salt would be great, glad you enjoyed the cookies
