    Vino Girl's Note:

    There are tons of oatmeal cookie recipes and everyone has their favorite, but this one is different than any I've seen so far: It contains toasted coconut and oats. It also has a high oat and coconut to flour ratio, which I like. This is such a soft and chewy cookie! I like it as written, but you could certainly add in raisins, spices, or chocolate chips if you wanted. Oatmeal cookies are my favorite and I've found some great recipes for them, but this one is honestly the best oatmeal cookie I've eaten. I hope someone out there agrees with me! :)

    Serves: 24



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Spread the coconut and oats out on a large baking sheet - two sheets work better.
    3. 3
      Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned and toasted, stirring often.
    4. 4
      While the coconut and oats cool, mix the flour, baking soda and salt.
    5. 5
      Cream the butter and sugar together in a separate, large, bowl at medium speed for one minute.
    6. 6
      Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and beat until mixed; beat in the milk.
    7. 7
      Stir in the flour, then stir in the coconut and oats.
    8. 8
      I thought the dough looked pretty sticky, so at this point I put it in the refrigerator for an hour. It's not something that's called for in the original recipe, but I recommend it since it worked very well for me.
    9. 9
      Drop dough in 1/4 cup amounts, 3 inches apart, onto greased baking sheets. I used an ice cream scoop for this (filled so the scoop was rounded, but not heaping), and it worked perfectly.
    10. 10
      Bake for 12 minutes, or until they are set and lightly browned.
    11. 11
      Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheets for one minute before transfering to a rack to finish cooling.

      Yum, loved em ohh so much! Slight modifications (I know this makes people crazy, but some like it sweeter than others etc etc....)- doubled the vanilla, halved the sugar and used coconut oil in place of butter. The bottoms have a slight crunch that reminds of a macaroon with the coconut followed by yummy soft oatmeal cookie. I'm sure folks with more of a sweet tooth will love the full brown sugar, and I would absolutely make again when I have butter on hand. Thanks for sharing!

      I altered this recipe in a few ways but think its marvelous! I subbed a banana in place of the two eggs, 4 oz of banana yogurt in place of the milk, and 1 cup white sugar plus 1/4 molasses for the 1 3/4 cup sugar. These substitutions were largely due to my daughter and son having egg white allergies. The resulting product------> muffin tops! Im in love. Im a huge oatmeal cookie fan and am crazy over coconut. Thanks for this recipe! Oh, I also had to bake for 20 mins.

      These cookies blew me away!! Toasting the oatmeal and coconut before baking is ingenius and made such a lovely flavour and crunchy yet chewy texture. Next time I will add some toasted almonds or pecans & cinnamon. Great recipe!
