Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Barb G.

My grand-daughter sent me this recipe she says they are delicious. These cookies work very well using Splenda or Splenda for Baking,in place of the white sugar. (note, I have been trying different ways to cut down on sugar, using 2 tablespoons molasses in stead of the brown sugar works good and using the splenda for baking, I have also used all butter instead of shortening & butter with good results)

I made this using 1/2 cup peanut butter instead of the shortening, increasing the butter to 2/3 cup, and adding 1/2 cup chopped nuts with the chocolate chips. Awesome!
