For The Love Of: Oatmeal with Coconut and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi again!

I found this recipe from a good friend of mine's blog, Elle, but tweaked the recipe a tiny bit to fit my liking. I have baked this twice so far, which means...in my mind it's "scrumptious!" It's not hard to bake, try it out and you'll see what I mean! Recipe provided. Happy baking!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tbsp of softened butter
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups of uncooked oatmeal
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy.

Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.

Add flour and baking soda into the wet ingredients; mix well.

Add oats, coconut, and chocolate chips; mix well.

Using a cookie scooper or a tablespoon, drop dough onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool for 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store  in an airtight container or zip lock bag.
