Toasted Coconut Dark Chocolate Cookies

Toasted Coconut Dark Chocolate Cookies
Looking for a new cookie recipe to try? This is my new favorite! Full of toasted coconut and dark chocolate chunks, it’s delicious!

The hardest part about this recipe is toasting the coconut, and not burning it. But I’ll give you a helpful hint, don’t get distracted! Keep your eye on it for the 3 minutes its in the oven. Easy, right?

Toasted Coconut Dark Chocolate Cookies
A few weeks ago Ryan and I celebrated our first anniversary!

And (the best part!) we ran into some cows right off the highway. I was a little overly excited because I had never been that close to a cow before!
