I know you read coconut and turned up your nose! I promise even non-fans will like these. Make sure to enjoy them while they're still warm with a big glass of milk.
1 1/2 C. whole wheat pastry flour (or substitute regular all-purpose)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 C. butter, at room temperature
1/4 C. unrefined virgin coconut oil (or substitute butter)
1 C. brown sugar, lightly packed
1 C. granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3 C. old fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 C. raisins
1/2 C. shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl sift together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
In another large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and until well blended, then slowly add the sifted dry ingredients until combined. Stir in oatmeal, raisins, and coconut.
Using an ice cream scooper, place 6 scoops of dough on a cookie sheet and bake 10-13 minutes until just barely golden around the edges. Makes roughly 24 large cookies.
