Easy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
These Easy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies are gluten free and full of old fashioned oats, white chocolate, and sweetened coconut! Quick, easy, thick, chewy, and soooo warm and cozy!
Servings: 10 cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg room temperature
- 1 1/4 cup ground old fashioned oats* (certified gluten free if necessary)
- 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats left whole (certified gluten free if necessary)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat.
In your stand mixer (or hand mixer), beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Beat in egg.
Stir in ground oats, whole oats, baking soda, and salt.
Mix until well combined.
Stir in white chocolate chips and coconut.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pack dough into the 1/4 cup and turn out dough onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake immediately, or cover baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.**
Remove plastic wrap and bake cookies in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. 12 minutes was perfect for me.
Remove from oven and let cookies sit for 5 minutes.
Transfer to a wire cooling rack to let finish cooling or eat immediately!
Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
*Make ground oats by placing about 2 cups old fashioned oats in your food processor. Grind until the oats resemble flour. Measure out 1 and 1/4 cups ground oats and resume with recipe!
**I never have had a problem with my cookies spreading when I don't refrigerate them, but if you're concerned, feel free to refrigerate the cookies then bake, as refrigerating will help the cookies keep their shape!
