Ingredients

  • 1/2  cup  unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup  dark brown sugar packed
  • 1/2  tablespoon  vanilla extract
  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

*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!
