Gluten free – oatmeal – chocolate chip – coconut – date cookies…that is a mouthful to say, eh? It is also a mouthful of deliciousness. I was originally going to do raisins instead of dates, but then I found some plump dried dates in my pantry and thought they would pair better with both chocolate and coconut.
These cookies can be made gluten free or not. You can replace the gluten free oats and flour with “regular” flour and oats. They pair perfectly with a cup of tea or a glass of milk!
I like the different texture and tastes within this cookie. The dates and coconut bring a chewy texture to the cookie and the chocolate chips are perfect for any chocolate craving.
