I just made these cookies and they are SO GOOD!! I think the whole wheat gives them a more "rich" flavor. There is just a hint of coconut - which I like. I think coconut is better as an accent than the main attraction. Just my humble opinion, of course.
Anywho, If anyone wants the recipe, here goes:
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts and Coconut
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. butter
1 t. vanilla
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 pkg. chocolate chips (whatever variety you prefer)
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together brown sugar, sugar, and butter. Add vanilla and egg, mix until well combined. Slowly add whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips, walnuts and coconut.
Drop onto cookie sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes, depending on how done you like your cookies.
