Dark Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

I’ve been holding out on you.  I fell in love with these cookies back in December.  I’ve made them several times since and am obsessed with the combination of dark chocolate + coconut + oatmeal in a cookie.  Talk about perfection. 
Do me a favor if you make these, use extra dark chocolate chips.  Because dark chocolate is good for us which makes extra dark chocolate even better, basically classifying these as healthy, no?  
But seriously, the extra dark chocolate adds so much rich flavor to these babies.  It’s phenom.  I saw these cookies over at Your Cup of Cake and just knew I wanted to try them.  Lizzy’s blog is beautiful! 

If you’re like me and like to bake cookies on Sunday afternoons, get busy making these!  Perfect way to  top off the weekend or start the new week, depending on how you look at it.
