Kathy's Pineapple-Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

I took a basic oatmeal cookie recipe and just changed a few things around. Dried pineapple works best. I wanted a cookie without chocolate, but I'm thinking of adding some chips to the next batch - these were a huge hit with my coworkers!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together flour, soda, powder and salt; set aside.
  3. Cream together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla - mixing on high until light and fluffy.
  4. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture, until well combined.
  5. Stir in oats, pineapple and coconut.
  6. Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet (I always use a silpat on my baking sheets - you never have burned cookies with one!).
  7. Bake 12 minutes on center rack until golden.
  8. Remove from oven, cool on sheet for about 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in airtight container.

These cookies are delicious. I followed the recipe with no alterations. I could eat a dozen of these at one time.

In an effort to use some languishing pantry items, I ran a half-batch trial of this today. Used unsweetened medium shred coconut that I toasted first, low-sugar dried pineapple, and quick oats. The only change was the addition of a few drops of coconut flavoring. I used my 1 1/2 T. scoop and they needed to stay in the oven a hair over 13 minutes. This makes a rather stiff dough so get your arm ready! DANG! This is one tasty cookie! Good thing (or bad thing?!?) I still have enough pineapple and coconut to make the other half-batch! This would easily move to a gluten-free recipe and I have every intention of trying it out...with a little coconut flour in the mix, too! I hope others have tried this recipe and just forgot to review! THANKS!!
