Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are one of my new favorites! If you love a good chewy oatmeal cookie as well as coconut, these things are awesome! A new favorite for the whole family, even for my husband, who prefers chocolate over oatmeal any day. Though, I bet they would be pretty tasty with chocolate chips in them as well…or craisins and white chocolate chips!
Makes 24 large cookies for less than $0.10/cookie
1 cup butter – ($1.00)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs – ($0.20)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2-2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups coconut – ($1.10)
Cream together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
Add in remaining ingredients and mix well.
Drop by spoon full on ungreased cookie sheet. I like to use my large ice cream scoop, as it seems to make the perfect sized cookie.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
