Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

From the

Delicious Living July 2010,  page 35 (revised).

I took it upon myself to revise the recipe directions so that it was easier to understand.

Dry ingredients

1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 scant teaspoon sea salt

Wet ingredients

1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup unrefined brown sugar
1 large egg

How to prep and bake

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spread coconut on a baking sheet  and cook until lightly golden, 5-7 minutes. Allow to cool.

2. Make the oat meal mixture (combine oats, chocolate chips and coconut in a medium bowl) and the flour mixture (sift together flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl).

3. In another large bowl, beat oil, vanilla and sugar on low speed. Add egg and beat until smooth. Stir in flour mixture just until smooth. Do not over mix. Stir in oat mixture just until combined.

4. Drop tablespoons of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spacing 1 1/2 inches apart.

5. Bake for 5-7 minutes rotate pan and bake another 5-7 minutes until cookie edges and centers are uniformly firm.

For chewier cookies, remove from oven when edges are set and centers are soft.

6. Cool 5 minutes; then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Seat and enjoy cookies when they are still warm. Enjoy with a glass of milk or a cup of tea!

Now, that is what I call a scrumplicious treat.

I was looking through the Women Who Launch website, (after reading a book by the same title) and came across a website for Tastefully Simple. I could have sworn that I did not know who Tastefully Simple was, until something caught my eye.  It was a product that really seemed familiar but I did not know why. After checking out the “shop our products” link, it suddenly dawned on me that one of the products was on show in my pantry and had been for a couple of months! We got it as a gift over Easter. Well, on Sunday Hubbie and I decided to mix the product with a bottle of beer (as per box instructions) and what a delight!Beer and Bread Mix

I say delight because I don’t drink beer and was worried about the taste. But, if you are not the dare devil that I am, go ahead and use soda or carbonated juice.

Well here it is, the wonderful and delicious Bountiful Beer Bread from Tastefully Simple
The mix goes for $5.49 and makes 14 serCheck it out!vings. Or you can get a triple treat with the Cozy Comfort Gift Box which includes the Bountiful Beer Bread mix, For the Love of Cookies and Creamy Wild Rice Soup Mix for $26.95. Go ahead and get the Bread or Gift box next time you want to have a treat or are having a party. Now is that a Scrumplicous deal or what?.
