Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Since discovering I have a few friends who can’t eat gluten, I’ve really enjoyed trying different gluten free recipes, like my brownies and pizza. These cookies were supposed to be gluten free… then I found out not all oats are created equal. Whoops. But they were really delicious, so next time I’ll have to get some specifically GF oats so I can share with my GF friends!
