I love my Cooking Light subscription. I really enjoy the photos and the numerous healthier recipes. In their Septembere 2008 issue, a woman from Anninston, AL submitted this recipe for her favorite low-fat chocolate coconut oatmeal cookies.
Since I couln’t find it posted anywhere, I thought I’d share it with you here:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 6 TBSP sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup coconut
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Mix everything together in a bowl and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
When I was making it, I had to add another egg the dough would combine, but you may find you don’t need it. I used a small cookie scoop and the cookies came out perfect!
They were absolutely delicious with a pleasant coconut and chocolate taste — a perfect combination! You have to try these!
