COCONUT OATMEAL COOKIES
2 3/4 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. coconut oil, measured solid, melted, and cooled slightly
2 t. vanilla
1 c. coconut
1 c. quick oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together sugars, eggs, melted oil, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Slowly mix in dry ingredients until thoroughly combined, then stir in oatmeal and coconut.
Drop by tablespoonfuls on prepared baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are set and slightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for two minutes before transferring to wire rack.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen.
Notes: We get 4 1/2 dozen tablespoon-sized cookies out of this recipe. We always have regular oats on hand, so I just pulse some in the food processor a few times to get quick oats.
