Dark Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

What can you add to a chocolate chip cookie to make it even better?  A handful of crunchy rolled oats. 

Dark chocolate chips of course.

And a sprinkling of coconut too.

Oh, and a glass of cold milk to wash it down. 

Now that is what I call a perfect chocolate chip cookie.  This recipe came from  I love the combination of the oats and the dark chocolate and the coconut.  I think you will too.
