Pineapple Coconut Oatmeal Cookies (V/GF)

These Pineapple Coconut Oatmeal Cookies are a game changer!

Like, they’re actually my new favorite cookie!

I always thought that a classic chocolate chip cookie would be my favorite, but these really take the cake! Or should I say cookie? (;

Putting juicy fruits in cookies is the best decision I ever made. The pineapple chunks give this coconut and cinnamon infused oatmeal cookies a bright, juicy burst of flavor.

It’s so hard to not eat only one of these babies!

It’s also quite challenging not to devour them all right away, but I highly recommend letting them chill awhile after baking. They actually get better each day after baking!
