Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies

These are definitely a different take on the standard choc chip cookies...but they are now the only cookies I really love! And if you don't like coconut...just move along to the next recipe!

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 (14-oz) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 (3 1/2-oz) can flaked coconut (1 1/3 cups)
1 (12-oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional, I never use these!)

Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder.
In large mixing bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and margarin until smooth.
Add graham cracker crumb mixture; mix well.
Stir in coconut, chocolate chips and walnuts.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
