Oatmeal Coconut Chocoate Chip Cookies

ahhh…. so nice to have an oven again! Figured i’d leave some treats for out dog sitter, and since we were laying low prior to vacation… it was the perfect storm!

I decided to grab a new recipe from my gain cookie cook book!

FYI – convection cooking – hello crispy and lovely cookies!


Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup Crisco butter flavor
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup quick cooking oats – uncooked
  • 1/2 cup coconut flake
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375. (I used convection setting) Place silpat onto cookie sheet (if you don’t have a silpat – go get one, if you can’t then grease the baking sheets with shortening!)
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda.
  3. Combine shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until well blended
  4. Add flour mixture gradually to creamed mixture at slow speed. Beat until will blended. Stir in oats, coconut and chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared sheets.
  6. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until light brown. Do not overbake. (convection makes them very crispy)

Option: melt 1 cup chocolate chips and crisco. Pipe onto the flat side of the cooking, cool chocolate side up until hardened.
