Two Pea's Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


As you all know, I love the blog Two Peas and Their Pod! Maria is always making the most DELICIOUS looking cookies. When I found out that my Grandma, Aunt, and Mom would be stopping by for a real quick visit- I knew I had to throw some cookies together (given we only really have veggies and lean protein in the house right now ;)). I ran to Maria's blog and found this awesome recipe for coconut oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! Given clean month, I won't be sampling these delights- but they smell AMAZING!



Are you guys having a good week? Mine has been pretty good :) Getting your workouts in? My workouts this week have gone a little something like this: Monday- 6 mile run, tricep dips for the BBBC, Tuesday- Taught Body Attack, Abs for BBBC, Wednesday- Body Pump and I plan to do my BBBC push ups later. Anyone looking forward to the weekend already ;)?

mm those cookies look delish! I'm doing a clean eating week myself right now so I think that makes them look extra good!!

I'm so glad it's almost the weekend! Workouts have been good this week..I'm looking forward to a run in the sun with my dog after work!

You must have such WILLPOWER!
They look delish-and I imagine
they smelled pretty yummy
as well. To not be able to taste
those sucker would be killer for
me. Haa. At least a little nibble.

I am in awe. How can you have those delicious looking cookies in your house and not eat them?!? You are amazing!

Week is going great so far! I'm fighting a little bug, but the workouts are going surprisingly well!

Lori said...

These look so tasty. Thanks for sharing! I hope you have/had a great time with your family! Workouts are going great this week. I've met some personal running goals so it doesn't get much better. :) I cannot wait for Easter! So excited this year!

How can you resist those? I'd perish!

I am always in awe of your 6 mile run. You go girl! Love it.
I've been doing good on clean eating; I take weekends off though, but I don't go crazy. Been baking up a storm, but I don't eat them, send them far away to hubbys' office. I love coconut in cookies so much, so I bet these are awesome.

Don't those look great? I really admire how much you work out. I need to start making more time for me to do that. I'm getting a free week pass to Sports Club LA next week so that will help – that place is awesome!

Happy Lost Night!

My week is going pretty well. Nothing special, but nothing bad either - I'll take it. Not looking forward to the weekend all that much. I have to work all day Saturday and then my husband has to work all day Sunday. :-(

Holly said...

Those look incredibly delicious!! I will have to check out the blog - I LOVE to makes cookies. I can only make them for other people, otherwise I end up eating them all myself!

Definitely looking forward to the weekend! I love Easter. Plus I gave up candy (for Lent) so I might have to have a lil' chocolate. :-)

Have a great Thursday!

I pretty much love anything relating to chocolate and/or coconut...and of course COOKIES!! These sound amazing!

I was so confused by the recipe you left me at first..I'm like whats "Banana Bread Black Bean Dip"???

Pearl said...

ahh thanks erica! you know, i would stir shredded coconut into my oatmeal so that each bite would be infused with that tinge of coconut, so these cookies look like they'd do SO well in my household!
