I got this recipe from a friend during a cookie swap. It had never occurred to me, to put coconut flakes in an oatmeal cookie. This is a sweet treat!
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- ¾ cup flour
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg or allspice
Preheat oven to 350˚. Cream butter and sugars together in a bowl. Add egg and vanilla and beat until creamy. Add remaining ingredients to bowl and beat on low, until combined. Scoop cookies, with a small ice cream scoop, onto a baking sheet coated with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned on the edges.
Note: My son has reacted to nutmeg in the past, so I always substitute nutmeg with allspice.
