The quote from the person who submitted it says it all when she states that its "good with a cup of coffee"... its a lower fat, healthier cookie, it will not be as moist as a normal cookie because its not loaded with butter and eggs. I even went a step further and used 1/4 cup of egg substitute instead of an egg, reduced the butter by a tbs and reduced the chocolate and coconut by 1/2tbs each to lower the fat. I also added 2 tbs of walnuts to one batch and that added a nice little crunch to them (raised the fat, but a much better fat!)... next time I might roast the walnuts first to bring out the flavor. Overall, I was VERY happy with it. I have been experimenting with cookie recipes, trying to lower the fat for years and I will honestly admit that this is the best one I have found. Its more sophisticated than the standard chocolate chip cookie. Delightful. For about four days straight my husband and I each enjoyed two cookies and a glass of fat free milk after the kids were in bed!

This cookie is wonderful right out of the oven and one day after if you like soft cookies - if you like your cookies harder wait the next day and it will be great or with a cup of tea/coffee. Made less than 2 doz if you used a mini cookie scooper.

Just made these cookies and followed the recipe except that I used mini chocolate chips instead of the dark chocolate, and I used regular old fashioned oats instead of the quick cooking. Cookies came out perfect!! After they cooled, I wrapped them two at a time, back to back, in plastic wrap to store them. My two boys, ages 14 and 10 yrs, both loved them! Will definitely make again!

This recipe came out WAY too dry. If I made it again, I would use a full stick of butter (1/2 cup) and more chocolate. Full disclosure, I used regular oats so maybe that was part of the problem.

These cookies were very brittle. I used dark chocolate chips rather than cut up chocolate. I really loved the idea of the combination but they were very dry. Perhaps I'll attempt them but cook them at less time. I was rather disappointed though with the initial run. My bad for not running a trial before bringing them to Christmas.

Spouse & I declare these the best ever. Fantastic recipe, but don't cook them 15 minutes! I took mine out at 11 minutes and they were perfect. I used a good quality very dark chocolate and egg substitute instead of eggs. Mine were not dry at all, perhaps because of the 11 minute cooking time.
