Coconut Oatmeal Cookie Pick-Me-Up

I needed another baking pick-me-up.  No ifs, ands, or buts about it.  Let’s crank up the oven and get rollin’!  I decided to bake one of our yummy cookies from our Cookin’ Up Sweet Treats eBook available on Kindle and Free Kindle reading apps everywhere!

These cookies really are a pick-me-up. They’re loaded with oatmeal and coconut which are great energy providers and darn it, coconut makes me pretty happy!  They’re also a thinner buttery cookie so they’re perfect for packing to take with you to work or school.  They’re certainly kid approved too.  My youngest was begging for one, took one bite, and said “Its…sooo good!  You make the best!”  Granted, she’s only three.  But we all know kids will be your most honest judges, good or bad 🙂
