I've altered the recipe by substituting sugar for stevia 1/4 cup and coconut sugar 1/4 cup and 1 cup flour 1/2 cup coconut 1/2 cup oats, still 1 egg, they came out great . I think I could reduce the sugar content more as they taste too sweet to me.
I was in the mood for coconut cookies, and this recipe fit the bill. As did other reviewers of this recipe, I decreased the amount of sugar to 3/4 cup due to my using sweetened coconut flakes. Also I increased the amount of coconut to 1 1/4 cups, as 3/4 cup didn't seem like enough to satisfy my craving. The cookies turned out chewy, crunchy and packed with coconut flavor. I think if I had added only 3/4 cup of coconut, the coconut flavor wouldn't have been as present. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Bert! Deeeelicious!
A fabulous cookie-we're all seriously addicted!! Thanks Bert
