Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

(Recipe from:  Cooking Light September 2008)

  • 4.5  ounces  all-purpose flour (about 1 cup)
  • 1  cup  quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 6  tablespoons  granulated sugar
  • 1/4  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  large egg
  • 3/4  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1/4  cup  flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped dark chocolate
  • Cooking spray 

Preheat oven to 350°.

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir with a whisk.

Place sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 2 minutes). Add egg, beating well. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; stir just until combined. Stir in coconut and chocolate.

Scrape dough onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 24 portions. Roll each portion into a ball. Place 12 balls on each of 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray; flatten slightly with the heel of your hand. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, at 350° for 15 minutes or until the tops are set and cookies are lightly browned on the bottoms. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.

Verdict:  I would make these cookies again.  I liked the texture of them.  The chopped chocolate and coconut probably helped out.  They have chewy centers and are crunchy on the outside.
