I fill my cookie jar frequently with these delicious cookies. They're a perfect treat for an afternoon cup of coffee or to tuck into a loved one's lunch. If you don't care for raisins, these cookies are equally good without them.

- 3⁄4 cup white sugar
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3⁄4 cup coconut

- Mix together flour, oats, coconut, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add to butter-sugar mixture and mix well.

- Drop by spoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets.

these are one of the best cookies i've ever made. i'm going to have to double the recipe the next time i make them which can't be soon enough! talk about gone in a heartbeat- i had to hide some for myself. hats off to you Carrie Ann. Sharona
Excellent recipe! I just finished making these to send off with my daughter and wish I had made more and I will! I made it exactly as the recipe said to and they turned out perfect! The coconut is a fabulous addition. They did spread some, but nothing major. It's just the type of cookie they are. If they spread too much try adding an additional 1/4 cup flour. Cookies also bake better on parchment paper. I used a medium cookie scoop and got 30 cookies--of course that's not counting the balls of cookie dough we had to eat. This is a keeper! Thank you for such a fabulous recipe! %u2665
These were kind of a cookie-baking disaster. I just didn't think they would spread that much. I got about 24 cookies out of this recipe but I didn't see that this recipe was for 36 cookies. I omitted 1/2 c of white sugar because my coconut I used was sweetened. I also added a tsp of vanilla, but other than that I used the recipe as written. These cookies really did spread out even though I gave them about an inch of space between each cookie. The end product was one giant fused together cookie. The cookies had a great chewy texture. They did end up being too sweet for me though. I couldn't really taste the coconut either but it added a nice chew along with the oatmeal. I would bake these again with some adaptation.
