Tried it last night to see if it would work for Mother's Day. Co-workers were the "lab rats" and they thought it was great. I'm fond of coconut, so may cut down on the choc chips next time and add more coconut. Very moist, and I will use it for Mothers Day, since I think it will travel very well and can be made a day or two ahead.
