Girlfriend's Graham Cookies

Oh my gosh!! We went to a girlfriend's house a couple weeks ago, and she made these cookies that were the key ingredient to me going off my dang low-carb diet. They were just delicious, so I asked for the recipe. Finally (right when I'm supposed to be back on the wagon) I get around to making them.

I don't know where she got the recipe from, but I'm assuming it was a magazine or something, so I don't claim to have invented it:

Girlfriend's Graham Cookies

1/2 C. graham cracker crumbs
1/2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 (14oz.) can sweetened, condensed milk
1/2 C. butter, softened
1 1/3 C. flaked coconut
1 (12oz.) bag of chocolate chips (or 2C.)
1 C. chopped walnuts

Mix crumbs, flour and baking powder in one bowl. In another bowl, beat butter and milk until creamy; add to crumb mixture and combine. Add coconut, chips and walnuts; combine.

Bake for 10-12 min @ 375

. . .

Super. Duper. Easy. But WARNING!! You will note this does NOT have any eggs in it. That might lead you to do what I did - lick the spoon. The hands, the bowl. If you aren't careful, you won't have any batter left to make cookies with. I joke you not. The batter is just as good as the cookie, my friend. As you can see, during the wee photo shoot, I had a little hoodlum try and snatch one:
