Grandma's Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sooooo... We have made these cookies everyday for the past 3 days! Like, do you know how much butter we have gone through in 72 hours?! Too much!

My family is known for always having cookies in the fridge or freezer. My mom makes her Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies almost every other day! The other week, I went to my grandma's house and had one of these cookies fresh out of the oven. They were AMAZING. They were so good and I just couldn't get over it. So, I called her the other day, made them, and they disappeared in a couple hours!

These cookies are a lot like my Mom's famous cookies, but they have less flour, more oats, and coconut! And I LOVE coconut so obviously they are dang good. There is something about a cookie that is just a little different than the usual that makes it SO good!
