Soft Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"These cookies are soft and chewy and didn't last a day after making them! Once I thought I HATED coconut, but these made me realize I just didn't like overly sweet coconut. These are fabulous! Made with whole wheat flour and oatmeal, it's a better alternative to the traditional cookie."

These turned out really good. I only used 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar, and substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce for half of the margarine (which is what I used instead of the oil) th...
