I love a new cookie recipe. Especially when I am out of chocolate chips, peanut butter and all of the normal cookie ingredients, I REALLY appreciate a cookie that has random ingredients that I actually have in my cupboards when I haven’t been to the store for weeks.. Like oatmeal and coconut. Score!
I had pinned this recipe a while ago and yesterday I wanted to bake something to help warm up the house (It was a chilly May day) so I went to my treat board and got the oatmeal and coconut.
The recipe is adapted from Lil Luna’s recipe. The change I made was instead of 2 cups of oatmeal, which seemed like a lot, down to 1 cup. I am sure it’s awesome with 2 cups, but in addition to 2 cups of whole wheat flour, it seemed like it would have made the cookie dough rock solid. With the 1 cup of oatmeal, the dough was perfect. And my whole family loves the cookies, because, well, they are cookies and because they are delicious!! I love the oatmeal-coconut combo.
And they are perfect dipped in black coffee. Which I had for breakfast today. And snack. And probably lunch.
