Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Do you want a cookie?? Well I have a good one for you, Coconut Oatmeal! So simple and so delish!

This is a really basic cookie dough that comes together in a flash but don’t let that fool you these cookies are amazing!

What you need,

½ cup butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal
½ cup shredded coconut

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer cream the butter and both sugars together, until light and fluffy.
Add in the egg and beat well.
Stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl whisk together the salt, baking powder, baking soda and flour.

Slowly add the flour mixture into the butter mixture until it is fully incorporated. Add the oats and coconut and mix until just combined.

Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto the prepared sheets. Press the dough a little to flatten. These cookies don’t spread out too much so if you press them a bit it makes for a nicely shaped cookie.

Bake one pan at a time in the center of the oven for 8-10 minutes. Until the edges are golden and crisp but the center of the cookie is still soft.
Let the cookies cool on the sheet pan for about 3 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store the cookies in an airtight container for 3 or 4 days if they last that long! They also freeze really well.

I love the simplicity of this cookie. They are so sweet and delicious, and quite frankly you can have them for breakfast because really it is just like having a bowl of oatmeal in cookie form.
