Recipe for Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
I know everyone is probably sick of cookies and cookie recipes, but NOT me! The holidays did not burn me out. Cookies hold a special place in my heart. They just make me happy...and my tummy happy too!
We had some friends over to watch a movie, so of course I had to bake a treat! I was in the mood for oatmeal cookies and they are Josh's favorite too! I wanted something a little different though. This time I added coconut and chocolate chips! A divine combo indeed! We especially loved these with a glass of cold milk!! These are the perfect dunkaroos!
Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oats, old fashion
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Cream together sugars and butter with a mixer. Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in oats and coconut. Add in chocolate chips. Shape to form 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake 12 minutes or until tops are golden. They will still be soft, but don't worry. They harden as they sit. 12 minutes was the magic number for me. NO longer!
Me neither.. I am not sick of them.. I don't think I ever will... I am a huge fan of coconut... coconut perfume.. you name it, if I could buy Hawaiian Tropic in a bottle I would...
Um.. So delish...
Maria, these look awfully good. Coconut and chocolate were made for each other. I love dunkaroos.
Great cookie combination. The coconut takes these to a whole other level!
Yum! I bet the texture and flavor is amazing!
Oooh -- I bet coconut adds the perfect touch! Thanks for the heads up about cooking time -- I am sure that I would overcook without that warning. Oh, and your scones from yesterday look seriously delicious as well!
Look at the center of the cookie, nice and soft just the way I like them!
This cookie combines all the things I love in a cookie and I bet the dough was tasty too!
This combination of ingredients makes my all time favorite cookie. Excellent recipe.
Ben will love these...his two food loves, other than bacon, are coconut and oats!
I don't think I'll ever be sick of a chocolate chip cookie! They look scrumptious!!

And I thought I was the only one. It seems like everyone is dieting and not baking - not me! Bring it on!

**Just as a heads up: I will not be able to comment on blogs as often now, during this semester, due to work overload (I'm stressed already) - PLEASE know that I'm still loyally reading, but just won't have time to comment. I hope you understand!!
Oatmeal cookies are my favourite. And can be eaten when I wake up because... oatmeal!
Today I am baking with blueberries and lemon and it is all your fault. :)
We're Twinkies today! We both talked about oatmeal cookies! :)
i'm fairly certain that i'll never grow tired of cookies, and if i do, it'll be a sad, sad day indeed. i love your combination of add-ins--very nice.
I'm not sick of seeing more cookie recipes, not at all!!!! Love all you've created so far! :D
How fun to have a movie night. I'm glad these turned out well for you!
Sick of cookies, I'm not sure that can happen! These look great. Love the addition of coconut!

Who needs to diet?! Those cookies look amazing! I'm a big fan of coconut.
this is a healthy and delicious cookie. Coconut has healing properties, oatmeal is plain healthy and chocolate has antioxidants. Yeh!
I'll never get sick of seeing cookies! Especially ones with coconut. :)
I am definitely not a big cookie person like you are but these look scrumptious!!!!!

It would take a catastrophe for me to be TRULY over cookies. Me thinks it impossible. These look fabulous.
I made these last night and they are sooooo incredibly good! And dangerous! My boyfriend and I couldn't stop eating them.
Making these right now! Yum!
I was looking for a good cookie recipe to use up the coconut I had and this is definitely it! I just whipped it up and have already sampled the first batch - delicious! I like the proportions of ingredients too - they don't overpower each other. :)
