DAY 2: Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Raisins in cookies have never been my favorite, but I really love oatmeal cookies. This recipe adds chocolate, chocolate chips and coconut to the traditional oatmeal cookie to give it a whole new dimension.

Using Dutch process or Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa will make these cookies extra rich and chocolately, but you can use regular cocoa as well.
