Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I'm not even gonna lie to you, these cookies are dangerous.  They are awesomely chewy.  They are so chewy that if you eat more than two your jaw hurts.  It's a beautiful, satisfying pain.  These are cheap to make and you probably already have everything in your cabinet.  Twenty minutes start to finish, what are you waiting for?  Go hurt your face with pure deliciousness.  You're going to thank me, so will your chiseled jawline and expanded waistline.

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies recipe adapted from Kitchen Magpie

1 Cup (226g)  Butter, room temperature
1 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cup Super Fine Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Cups Shredded Coconut, unsweetened
2 1/2 Cups Quick Oats
1 1/2 Cups Raisins or Chocolate Chips

Preheat Oven to 350F/175C.

Cream together the butter and sugars.
Add eggs one at a time, beating in between.  Mix.
Whisk together flour and baking soda, slowly add to butter mixture.
Slowly add in coconut and oatmeal.  Add raisins or chocolate chips, or both.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto lined baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  

If the cookies look underdone, that's great!  You don't want them too brown, they finish themselves off to perfection on the cooling rack. 

This dough refridgerates wonderfully.  Let it sit out for about ten minutes, then roll into a log and slice into discs.  

Makes 4 dozen.

Hi. I made these. Absolutely delicious! I cut out the white sugar completely and only added how much brown sugar you said as I cook low sugar. And I may have almost doubled the chocolate. Yum yum. Thanks so much! Irina

Awesome! I've made them again replacing all of the sugar but 1/4 of the brown with 3/4 cups of pureed dates! You could do half dates half figs as well. They would be excellent for Christmas. I bet it would be really great if you added a bit of nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom too!

These are deadly. My second batch is chilling in the fridge. Honestly, the best cookies ever. I added 1 tsp of allspice.
