Chocolate Oat Sea Salt Cookies

3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. table salt
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1  1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups organic rolled oats
1/4 cup top quality cocoa powder (like Valhrona)
1/4 – 1/2 cup shredded organic coconut flakes (to taste)
1-2 cups top quality dark chocolate chips (like Ghiradelli)
Sea Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream sugar and butter, when fluffy add eggs and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together and slowly add to butter mixture.
Add rolled oats, coconut flakes and chocolate chips.  You can refrigerate at this point – or make them immediately.  Try not to eat all the raw batter!   Make 3″ rounds, and sprinkle with sea salt before baking (I prefer pink Himalayan sea salt – it adds a sparkle!).  Bake about 15-18 minutes.  Cool on rack.  Pour tall glass of ice cold milk / share / and enjoy!
