Chewy Chocolate, Oat & Coconut Cookies (gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free)


My favorite chewy chocolate cookies with oats and coconut

This my favorite recipe for chewy chocolatey cookies, and so I always end up eating way too many straight out of the oven – they smell too good to leave alone!

I always love baking with oats and coconut, and so it was a no-brainer for me to add these to my chewy chocolate cookie recipe.

I hope that you love this recipe as much as I do! xo
