Easy & Delicious Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Cookies

The delicious smell of warm cookies baking in the oven? Sign me up!

Something came over me last weekend and I decided to try making some cookies. I truly can’t tell you the last time I have baked ... have I ever even really done that? Blame it on the changing seasons, blame it on living in a new apartment, but I think baking is something I could get into...

I tried out this recipe in a few variations and think I have gotten the oatmeal cookie proportions just right; not too sweet but not too healthy. These ingredients were so simple and the cookies were so easy to make.

If you have been looking for a quick treat to make + some cozy smells for fall, this is the recipe for you! I hope you enjoy, would love to hear your variations of this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 Cup Oats
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2/3 Cup Maple Syrup (1 cup for sweeter cookies)
  • 1/2 Stick of Butter (melted; option to substitute for 1/4 cup coconut oil)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 Cup White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flakes
  • 1 Sprinkle Salt

Feel free to get creative with the toppings you add into your cookies! I chose chocolate chips and coconut flakes, but there are so many other delicious alternatives. Some other great toppings would be: walnuts, raisins, pecans, cinnamon, toffee, caramel, M&M's, the list could go on forever!
