Chewy Oatmeal Cookies With Coconut

 

I have probably mentioned my dad’s penchant for very chewy treats before, from his utter dismay over McIntosh toffee getting rid of their bar format and turning to little candies instead, to his love of raisins in chocolate cake.

So one week while he was staying with us, I set out to make one helluva chewy cookie.

OUR LATEST VIDEOS

I figured you needed oats, coconut flakes and raisins combined to make the chewiest cookies possible and what was turned out of my oven at the end was one tasty, jaw-ache inducing cookie!

Ingredients Needed:

1 cup of butter
1 1/4 cups of  flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups of flaked coconut
3 cups of quick oats
1 1/2 cups of raisins OR mini chocolate chips

Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.

Like all recipes, cream together your butter and sugars until the mixture is light colored. Add in your eggs one at a time, beating until fluffy.

Whisk the flour and baking soda together, then beat into the butter mixture, adding flour bit by bit until it’s completely added.

Next add in your coconut and oatmeal, mixing slowly on the lowest setting of your mixer.

Then choose whether you are going chocolate or raisins and add those in.

Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto a greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Because I was testing out my recipe, I tried both, the front cookie being chocolate and the back being raisins.

I couldn’t tell you which I preferred because, hey, can you ever go wrong with chocolate? And the raisins made it super chewy, which was a good thing.

It’s hard to overeat cookies when you can’t eat more than three, due to your jaw plain ol’ just giving out on you.

Feel free to give it your best shot though.

    Just made these and they turned out perfect! Thanks for sharing! As a note, I have a convection oven so I reduced the time to 9 minutes, turning the pan after 5 minutes for an even bake. 🙂 Super chewy goodness!

    Yum, in the oven and smell divine. I only had sultanas so threw them in, some chopped dried apricots would also have gone nicely,

    I love these -usually we bake cookies then keep 1/2 of the batter to bake later so we have more fresh cookies! For this recipe the batter was a bit dry so we reduced the oats to 2.5 cups and now it is great. With chocolate chips these taste like macaroons!

    Thank you for this inspiring recipe! I tweaked it just a bit:
    I use unsalted butter, so added a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tsp of vanilla. Also, I used a tablespoon scoop, and ended up with almost 7-dozen yummy cookies, which I’ll be sharing with family and friends.

    Hi

    I see there is no flavoring in these cookies, is there a reason for no vanilla.

      Oh, there’s flavoring! Brown sugar is flavor, the coconut is flavor and the raisins/chocolate chips are flavor. You can most certainly add in vanilla if you wanted, but I was looking for something else in these cookies.
