A few notes about oatmeal

Oats are among the wealthiest grains on earth. They are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Studies have shown oats help with weight loss, lower blood sugar and may reduce heart disease.

Commonly eating for breakfast, there are several varieties of oats. Because oats take a long time to cook, the most common form sold in supermarkets is rolled, crushed or steel-cut oats. You can also find them as Instant (quick) oats.

How to make the oatmeal coconut cookies

For this recipe, you can use quick-cooking oats. The texture is what’s important. I usually buy the brand Quaker Oats and can only attest to that particular brand and no other.

The recipe also calls for dried coconut. I discovered that by adding a refined dried coconut, the cookies are more appetizing, softer and don’t burn quickly in the oven. By refined, I meant, finely shredded coconut.

You will also need a good vanilla extract as well as a good flour brand. As far as milk, I usually use what I have on hand, lactose-free milk, two percent or whole milk. With butter, that’s a different story. Butter makes a huge difference in baked goods. So make sure you buy a good brand of butter.

  1. I’m definitely going to have to try these. I’ve not had coconut in oatmeal cookies, but it sounds like a good pairing.
