Oat, Coconut & Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

This week's new recipe are these delicious oat, coconut and walnut chocolate chunk cookies. I shared these on Instagram while I was testing them and I had so many requests for the recipe! They make the perfect buttery texture-filled ‘bitsy’ choc chunk cookie.

I guess you could say these cookies are slightly "healthier" than a standard cookie recipe that uses butter and regular sugar.

Also, you don't need to bake all 18 cookies at once. These cookies store perfectly as cookie dough balls in the freezer, ready to bake whenever you need, even one cookie at a time! Just add an extra minute or two to the baking time.

Enjoy the recipe, and as always, please let me know if you make it @gatherandfeast, and feel free to ask any questions.
