These taste like brownies but are crunchy, chewy cookies. I usually have to make a double batch of these as my family enjoy them a little too much!

I can't really rate this. No one in my family eats coconut, so I was just going to skip it. I didn't realize that it was the binder for the mixture. I did add some water and salvaged some brownie like cakes. One problem with the recipe is that it doesn't specify what size pan to use.

I'm so glad to see this recipe. It's one I used to make often and haven't for quite a while. It's delicious and straight forward to make. I used to have to make it for the teachers at school who asked my kids for it!
