Perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are Amazing...they literally are my favorite cookie. They have so much texture and flavor to them. I made them for my father-in-law and he ate the whole plate because he thought that they were that good! I got the recipe from My Kitchen Cafe.
here is the recipe...

1 cup oatmeal (not quick)
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar (when I don't have dark brown sugar I use light brown sugar)
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cup coconut
1 cup walnuts
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the top 4 ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend about 30 seconds until coarse. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter for 30 seconds until light in color. Add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Next, add the dry ingredients then add the coconut, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Shape cookie dough into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Let the cookies cool slightly before removing them from the pan to a wire rack. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.


  1. We must be kindred spirits since these are my favorite cookie, too. Glad you (and your father-in-law) liked them!

  2. I remember that day my Dad ate them all. I didn't get even ONE!
