All time favourite – Gluten-Free Cookie with the flavour of Coconut & Chocolate

I know everyone is probably sick of cookies and cookie recipes, but NOT me! The holidays or weekends did not burn me out. Cookies hold a special place in my heart. They just make me feel happy and satisfy, and my tummy happy too!

We had some family friends over weekends to get together, so of course I had to bake a treat! I was in the mood for healthy cookies where I chooses gluten free oatmeal cookies and they are Parth’s favorite too (my two year old son). I wanted something a little different though. This time I added coconut and chocolate chips! A divine combo indeed! We especially loved these with a glass of milk. These are the perfect cookie recipe I ever had.
