Easy Oatmeal ChocoCoNut Cookies

20 Nov

A friend of Handy Mike’s always saves me the leftover cookies from work functions.¬† My last treat was from a local company, Hot Box Cookies, started by Mizzou graduates. Their cookies are thick baked, soft and chewy-my favorite the chocolate chip cookies! This recent treat was from a meeting at the Hampton Inn, a trio of oatmeal chocolate chip coconut macadamia nut cookies.¬† A mouthful to say and to eat but truly a delicious combination.¬† My craving had new embers and I realized I had all those ingredients in my pantry (except macadamias) and set out the following week to make some.

Preheat the oven to 375¬įF.¬† I mixed 3/4 C self rising flour with 1/2 tsp. baking soda in one bowl.¬† In another I cream 1/4 C brown sugar, 3/4 C caster sugar, and 1/2 C (1 stick) of softened butter together.¬† To this I mix in 1egg, then 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract & 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.

Now it’s time to stir in 1 1/2 C oats and a cup or ones preference of add ins-today its shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and crushed walnuts! Place and press spooned scoops of dough on a greased baking sheet and bake: 10 minutes for soft cookies, 11 minutes soft and chewy, 12 minutes crispy cookies!

The boys like soft baked and I prefer crispy and chewy.  We went through the first batch in three days so I had to make more (and will need to make another replacement batch for the sitcom treat video as well)!  Of course we did-this cookie is a sweet, filling, satisfying biscuit with a cinnamony aroma! Totally addictive<3 Full recipe video on YouTube Gypsy Bouche!
