I altered this recipe but I am going to rate it anyway. I only had one stick of butter so I halved the recipe. However, I used heaping 3/4 cups of the coconut, oats, and cereal. Instead of corn flakes I used rice krispies, and my coconut was sweetened. I omitted the nuts, and added 3/4c semisweet chocolate chips. I used a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop, and flattened out a couple on the first batch to see how I preferred them. I prefer them dropped right from the scoop, unflattened. Mine were perfect right at 8 minutes. When I tried them fresh out of the oven, I was disappointed - they somehow seemed totally flavorless. However, one thing I have learned about baking cookies is that they almost always taste way better the next day, So, I tried them the next morning and they were FANTASTIC. Delicious flavor, and I love love love the texture (although my alterations definitely changed that). They were chewy, yet not cakey at all, and the rice krispies gave a definite crunch. I love recipes like this, ones that allow lots of customizing. I took them to work and everyone loved them (and my co-workers don't mind sharing their true feelings!) This is definitely a keeper for me.
