This month's theme for Fill the Cookie Jar post is Mother's Day.   Often when we got home from school there was a batch of fresh cookies waiting for us.  Opening up the door and the smell of fresh cookies waffle to our noses.. Memories!!  One of my favorite cookies were and still are oatmeal raisin.

I had found some coffee flour at Trader Joe's and another memory of my mom was all the coffee she drank.  Or should I say all the coffee cups she had around the house as I am not sure she drank that much coffee but would have cups of coffee although the house, sipping as she cleaned and cooked or baked.

These memories brought me to my cookie for this month - Coffee and Oatmeal Raisin.  As I am trying to eat healthier I found a recipe for Healthy Coconut Cookies that I adapted to make these awesome cookies that taste like you are biting down into an tasty spicy brownie.
