Coconutty Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since I bake these cookies ALL the time, I decided to post them on my blog. Please enjoy this step-by-step view of my favorite cookies, starting with what the dough looks like after I mix everything together in my cherished Kitchen Aid Mixer, which I have had for 14 years. Love it. (Edited on 15 October 2010: My old mixer died and I replaced it with this new one.) I used the small scoop this time. Sometimes I use my medium or large scoops too.
Gee, my hands sure do look "veiny." This was a tricky shot, taking this photo myself with my left hand (as I'm right handed), while I posed with my right hand.

This small batch makes exactly enough for two baking stones full of cookie dough, a total of forty delicious (if I say so myself) cookies. I used a well-loved rectangle stone and a newer, less seasoned one to show the difference of my two stones in this size. A cookie sheet will work also.
I let the cookies rest for a few minutes on this raised cooling rack before removing them, (and eating some).
Well, here's the finished product altogether. A picture IS worth a thousand words when it comes to recipes. These "specialty cookies" are soft, chewy, and according to my kids, "perfect."
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats, old fashioned
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together butter, sugars, and vanilla until creamy. Then add egg. Next blend in the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Then add the remaining ingredients. Drop cookies onto a baking stone using a stainless scoop. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. Cool on stone for five minutes or so before removing. Eet smakelijk!

These are my MOST FAVORITE cookies. They are awesome. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe with me a few months ago, although I'm sure these cookies account for a couple of pounds I've put on!

THANK YOU, Danielle! I'm so excited that you love them. So do we. Sorry about the poundage that my recipe may have "inadvertently" caused!

I'm also glad you no longer mistake the baking soda ingredient with baking powder...oops! They puffed up like biscuits, but still tasted fine though, huh?

These sound yummy--I will try them. I love that you took a picture of your own hand making them--very tricky! Thanks for the step by step review.

I love cookies. I am so glad that you have decided to share such a great recipe. Just the title of them makes me want to eat them.

Kelly, I made these today. They were de-lish! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I took them to school for Taylor's birthday. She requested cookies instead of cupcakes. I hope Card Camp went well. :)

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
