Krispy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Have you ever played around with a recipe and received results that you weren’t expecting? 

Well, that’s what happened to me with these Krispy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. In a good way of course! 

I found this recipe in a cookbook I picked up from Good Will. 

I LOVE finding cookbooks at thrift stores or estate sales. 

I get a ton of inspiration and ideas and in return, give each cook book at least one horrified stare as I read a recipe about meat in some form of gelatin.

Good grief there are so many recipes with random items in jello that I’m half curious, and half disgusted at the idea.

And EVERY cook book has one. 

If it’s a community cookbook of some sort, there is always that odd recipe that grandma submits from back in the day that is a “family favorite.”

Those are the recipes that I read to my husband, who agrees they do not sound edible.

However, this cookbook titled Recipes Community Christian School here in Minnesota, has a lot of recipes that sound pretty tasty.

This is one of the recipes that sounded really tasty. 

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but what I got wasn’t quite what I had in mind.

The cookies have a shortbread cookie consistency.  Crispy, but chewy. 

They aren’t overly sweet, again like a shortbread, and the mild flavor lingers in your mouth after each bite.

I whipped these up for a baptism at church and a lot of the people kept telling me they really liked the cookies.

Me, being the person who likes an extra cup of sugar (or two) in everything, thought they weren’t quite sweet enough. Everyone disagreed that they were perfect just as they were.  However they never tried the chocolate chip version!

I added in some mini chocolate chips I had sitting around and that little extra addition made them the perfect cookie for me. So good I couldn’t stop eating them!

If you love shortbread style cookies, these Krispy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies are perfect for you!  Add chocolate chips or don’t, they are a hit and perfect for any occasion!

          Hi Bonnie! The recipe is correct as written. The comments before were that I had 1 cup of butter listed TWICE. I’ve removed that so it is only listed once. 🙂

      You can make the cookies without them but they a texture to it and help absorb some of the moisture giving you a crispier crunchier cookie. But yes you can make it without them. It will just result in a different texture and consistency.

    My friend made these and then told me about them. They are amazing– even though I used old-fashioned oats, and they turned out great! I think they’d be fabulous with toasted pecans and/or butterscotch chips. That’s what I’ll do the next time. Love the crispiness and the crunchy textures.

      I have not. However the 1 cup of oil is what gives these cookies their unique crispy texture. You can certainly use butter but that will change the texture of your cookie.
