Coconut, Cranberry and Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

IMG_4786

Cookie # 4!  For our cookie gift basket, we needed a fruit filled cookie that was not overly chewy and tart. A lot of people do not like chocolate dessert, so I feel these are a nice addition to reach the fruity people of the world. The dark chocolate is a very small component and complements the cranberries. Most people do not notice the dark chocolate in it. Instead their concentration is on the fruit and cookie itself.

These are a crunchy little cookie. For me, I personally love chocolate so I would add more chocolate chips or white chocolate if you are into that 🙂
