I have a lot of oatmeal in my stockpile and I got a wild hair the other day to make cookies. I made oatmeal, craisin, coconut cookies and they were a big hit with the whole family. I took the Quaker Oats Vanishing Cookie recipe and just added craisins and coconut instead of raisins.
Brown Sugar, 3/4 Cup
Granulated Sugar, 1/2 Cup
Butter, 1/2 Cup (one stick) softened
Vanilla, 1 teaspoon
All-purpose flour – 1 1/2 cups
Baking Soda, 1 teaspoon
Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
Oatmeal, 3 Cups (old-fashioned or quick cook)
Craisins, 1 Cup
Coconut, 1/2 Cup
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.) In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and eggs, mix again.
3.) In a separate bowl – combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to large bowl with butter and sugar – blend until mixed.
4.) Fold in craisins and coconut at the end.
5.) Scoop full tablespoons of the cookie batter onto ungreased cookie sheets.
6.) Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until a light brown. Let them cool. Enjoy.
What are some of your favorite recipes for oatmeal?
And a handful or two of dark chocolate chunks … mmmmm.
Made these the other day!!! Sooo good….I did use my new favorite obsession, coconut oil instead of the butter. Added a little more coconut taste!!! Soft and delicious!!!
We make these at X-Mas, minus the coconut, and they don’t last long….none of us are raisin fans but craisins are the best!
