This is my most popular recipe of all time… who knew?

These timeless kid-friendly gems are so easy. Just mix, let dry and enjoy! The blend of coconut, chocolate and oats is a simple and healthy treat for kids and the kids-at-heart.

I love to make these as an addition to a cookie platter over the holidays. The colour and shape really adds great texture to the presentation. They are moist and chewy, when your other cookies may be crispy and light.
