My favorite season is fall. That might have something to do with my birthday, but mostly it has to do with my allergies. Me, spring and pollen are not good friends. Not at all. Just thinking of pollen and I immediately start to sneeze and have runny eyes. Last week was the worst week ever! Nothing pleased me. The light and the softest sound would give me a terrible headache. There were no painkillers to help me. I tried them all, every 2-3 hours. Days and nights.

The only good thing about my week, except the good kisses and “doctor care” from my 4 year old, was a dozen of these chocolate chip oatmeal cookies hidden in the back of my freezer. They are like the ultimate oatmeal cookies. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, coconut and chopped pecans meet chewy oatmeal cookie.

It’s an explosion of flavors and a mixture of textures. Melting chocolate chips, creamy peanut butter, flavorful shredded coconut, crunchy pecans and chewy oats. Oh yes! These cookies must happen in your kitchen soon!

    These look amazing. I hope you’re feeling better. I’m not a fan of the warmer months either. I don’t have allergies but when it’s hot, I get so sick. Migraines and terrible stomach aches are the norm and I almost never eat. I’ve already got a countdown to September going (109 days)!
