Maple Chocolate Chip Cookies

This post is inspired by Maine Maple Sunday.

My dad has an obsession with Maple Syrup.  He has it pretty much everyday.  On grapefruit, oatmeal, on ice cream, sweet potatoes, squash, in yogurt, etc. He always  is asking me to make the maple cake his mom used to make.  When he runs out of ideas on what to have maple syrup on, he digs out the shot glass and has a shot.  The first time my husband observed this, it was quite entertaining.  My husband's eyes were wide in disbelief as my dad poured a shot for him.  While I was visiting my dad during my maternity leave, I pondered putting two of my dad's favorite foods together:  Maple and Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I began playing in the kitchen, trying to create the perfect recipe.  These were approved with gusto.  And then I get asked when I'm going to be making them again.

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cup oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup white flour
1 cup coconut
2 cup choc chips

Cream butter, sugars and eggs.  Add the rest of the ingredients in sequence, mixing as you go.  Drop on greased cookie sheets.  Bake 375 for 10-12 minutes.  Mmm.
