Oatmeal Raisin and Coconut Cookies

I was feeling sad today , its come upon me a bit suddenly this time , I wasn’t really prepared things have been hectic recently and suddenly calmed down so I needed something meditative , mixing together ingredients that would fill the flat with sweet smells .

I wanted these to be big chunky cookies I had some recently in London at the Kings Fund from the Byron Bay Cookie Company that tasted lovely even at 1.50 each .

The cookies turned out deliciously crunchy on the outside light on the inside , these I think may become a regular on my fantasy cafe menu , may try making them with chocolate chunks or ginger so watch this space

    You don’t say when to mix in the sugar or oats so I guessed. They still turned out really well though.
