Soft and chewy oatmeal cookies with the addition of sweet, toasted coconut.
It has been crazy around here lately. Lots of personal stuff has been going on so I apologize for the sporadic appearances. Today I am really going to start focusing and putting a plan in place for the rest of the year. I love my job so, so much it truly is my passion so I am determined to get back on track. Thank you all for being so patient and kind. Let’s start by kicking off Spring (better late than never!) with these Toasted Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. Spring is my favorite time of the year! The weather is perfect and it just brightens up your spirits getting out in the fresh air, you know? When I think of Spring, I think of fresh flavors like citrus, fruit and coconut.
I have tried tons of oatmeal cookie recipes and none of them turned out the way I like them. To me, a perfect oatmeal cookie is thick, soft, chewy and loaded with oats. And that’s exactly what these are! This is my go-to oatmeal cookie recipe and if you just want a classic oatmeal cookie, I have one HERE that you can click over to. There are so many ways to switch this recipe up.
Chilling the dough is absolutely mandatory for these cookies. Without chilling, the cookies will spread out a ton and be flat and crispy. We want nice and thick cookies, so please chill that dough, people! Enjoy
