      Three favorites in one and just great!!!! They are crunchy and chewy at the same time. Don't forget to add the egg. I contacted Joy and I bet she corrects the recipe. I used canola oil for my shortening. I found the mix to be too wet (it would not be so if you used butter). So I added another cup of oats. It also may have been because I used whole oats NOT quick oats which would have absorbed more. As an aside I used graham flour, just because I had it. Instead of pressing down with a fork dipped in milk, I just used my finger. This is on my short list of favorites now.

      I have decided to change my rating from 4 to 5 stars, after seeing my friends inhale these cookies, which I baked from frozen dough. It is true that the texture is nice. My only problem seems to be that I don't like the coconut chocolate combination very much. This was obviously not true in the case of the other people. The cookies were easy to make and the dough also froze well. I will use this recipe again, as is and also varying the additions. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
