Chocolate ANZAC / Coconut Oat Oreo Cookies Recipe

Chocolate ANZAC / Coconut Oat Oreo Cookies
I love ANZAC cookies in its original form and have been hesitant to make drastic changes since the original cookies are great. If it ain't broken don't fix it! I finally decided to give chocolate ANZAC cookies a try.  The cookies ended up being quite different from ANZAC cookies, probably because I used a lot of cocoa powder. They didn’t remind me of ANZAC cookies at all, they actually reminded me more of Oreo cookies, a coconut oat version. They are wonderful to say the least.

These cookies are really delicate, you need to handle them with more care than a new born baby!

Here you can find the recipe for ANZAC cookies and other variations that I have tried.
