Cacao Nibs Toasted Coconut Walnuts Oatmeal Cookies

I am obsessed with this oatmeal cookie recipe as you can tell from my two consecutive bakes.
First of all, the cookies are very very tasty and have complex flavor and texture.
Secondly, the recipe is so versatile and simple where you can have fun experimenting with different ingredients and it will turn out delicious no matter what.
3rd-ly and most importantly, there are oats in the recipe.. that makes them healthy right? (:

This time around, I added in cacao nibs, toasted coconut and walnuts. 
  1. Cacao Nibs- nom nom, healthier alternative to chocolate chips
    The bitterness of the cacao is balanced very well with the mild sweetness of the dough. It also adds a bit of a crunch.
  2. Toasted Coconut- why not? I had left overs that's been sitting around.
    They sort of disappeared in the final product. The coconut aroma did not come out (maybe due to old coconut?), but the cookie did turned out more moist and chewy.
  3. Walnuts- always a staple in my cookies, nuff said (:

had one fresh out of the oven (:

Cacao Nibs Toasted Coconut Walnuts Oatmeal CookiesSame base recipe as previous Kettle Corn Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
1/3 cup cacao nibs
1/3 cup walnuts
2/3 cup toasted coconuts
1/4 cup brown sugar
half of a 1/8 cup sugar (<1 p="">1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

The dough was chilled for approx 1-1.5 hour, baked for 10 minutes and yielded 23 wonderful bites! I pressed the dough down with a cup after chilling and would press more next time for flatter cookies. These barely spread even after the short chill. 

These cookies are addicting with a slight crispy edges and moist/chewy center. Don't mind me if I don't share any. These are too good.

Taste: 5 stars out of 5
