Preparation

Time: 1hrs

Yield: about 30 cookies

Level: Easy

Ingredients

  • 8oz butter, room temp
  • 3/4 C firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1 3/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3C uncooked, rolled oats
  • 1C mini chocolate chips
  • 2/3 C shredded, sweetened coconut

Preparation

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt with a fork to combine. Set aside.

In a separate, large bowl (or your stand mixer), beat butter and both sugars until creamy.

Add the eggs and both extracts  to the butter/sugar, and beat well.

Now add the flour 1/2 at a time, mix well.

Finally add the oats, chips, and coconut and combine thoroughly.

Scoop onto a sheet tray with a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop, depending on the size you want – the dough will be fairly dry, so they won’t really spread much.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, depending on how ‘crunchy’ you like your cookies.  The cookies should be slightly golden brown.  Remove from sheet tray and let cool on a cooling rack.
