Peanut Butter Cookie with Coconut Flakes and Heath Bits

is my peanut butter cookie with the addition of coconut flakes, which serve
both as a binder and added texture surprise, and Hearth Bar bits in the
cookie and on the top, along with one strategically placed peanut half.
The coconut flakes are unsweetened but sweetened would be OK. (Since I
prefer unsweetened coconut for all savory recipes there is always some
in the pantry.)  Whole Foods carries it.
