Coconut Oatmeal Cookie Pick-Me-Up

Posted by

I needed another baking pick-me-up.  No ifs, ands, or buts about it.  Let’s crank up the oven and get rollin’!  I decided to bake one of our yummy cookies from our Cookin’ Up Sweet Treats eBook available on Kindle and Free Kindle reading apps everywhere!

These cookies really are a pick-me-up. They’re loaded with oatmeal and coconut which are great energy providers and darn it, coconut makes me pretty happy!  They’re also a thinner buttery cookie so they’re perfect for packing to take with you to work or school.  They’re certainly kid approved too.  My youngest was begging for one, took one bite, and said “Its…sooo good!  You make the best!”  Granted, she’s only three.  But we all know kids will be your most honest judges, good or bad :)

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Simply put, these are crazy delicious!


1 Cup Butter or Margarine (softened)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Pure Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 ½ Cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. Salt
2 Cups Oatmeal
2 Cups Shredded Coconut


1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

2. Cream the butter and sugars together at medium speed.   Beat in eggs and vanilla.

3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then gradually stir into wet ingredients.   Stir in oatmeal and coconut.

4. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet at least two inches apart.  Sprinkle tops of cookies with additional coconut.

How do you resist eating the perfect cookie dough ball?

5. Bake one baking sheet at a time for 9-12 minutes.

Makes:  Approx. 3 Dozen

Time:  Approx. 1 hour

Tip:  Pack some of these cookies to bring to your next sporting event, like your children’s soccer games, softball games, etc.  Share with the other kids and parents.  They’re sure to provide some needed energy for the players as well as the spectators :)   And you’ll be the hit of the event for bringing such an amazing treat!
