These cocoa nib coconut oatmeal cookies are packed full of flavor!

I made these cookies about a week ago and couldn’t stop eating the batter. I know I know. Raw egg. However, I can’t stop myself. Batter is so delicious. Don’t you agree? Mmmmm….batter. 

Now, until I made these cookies I had never had cocoa nibs. These things are rocking my world. They are nutty and chocolaty at the same time. It’s the perfect crunchy combination. I paired these cookies with a little toasted coconut and used some whole wheat flour to help make them a little healthier. It’s my way of justifying eating cookies for breakfast.
