Super Crunchy Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

A really easy cookie recipe for cookies with a perfect crunch

Do you love a crunchy cookie? That crunch when you take the first bite. I love both crunchy cookies and soft cookies, but when it comes to oat cookies it has to be crunchy, that´s just the way I am used to them from my childhood. In Finland, oat cookies are mostly made thin and crispy and so I also love them this way.

When I started my YouTube channel, my first recipe was a cookie recipe, quick and easy oat cookies with pecan nuts. When I created that recipe, I also had an idea for coconut cookies. I tested the recipe and somehow forgot to post it. After a long time I realized I hadn´t posted the recipe yet and it had to be done! I had to share this super easy, yummy recipe with you. 

If you love the crunch and you love coconut, then start get your cookie on and bake some of these crunchy goodies!

Happy Baking Lovelies!

RECIPE

Crunchy Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

A really easy cookie recipe for cookies with a perfect crunch

​INGREDIENTS

  • 50g oats

  • 100g shredded coconut

  • 2 tbsp flour (about 30g)

  • 80g sugar

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 100g butter

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 egg

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

  2. Melt the butter and allow it to cool shortly.

  3. Add the cooled butter to the dry ingredients and mix shortly.

  4. Then add the vanilla extract and mix again shortly.

  5. Add the egg and mix well until combined. You want to have a paste like batter at the end (see video).

  6. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and take a teaspoonful of the batter. Press the cookie dough with your fingers into the parchment paper to form a thin cookie (see video).

  7. Leave the cookies a bit apart when forming them (maximum 12 cookies per baking tray).

  8. Bake the cookies in 200°C in the middle shelf of the oven for about 5-8 minutes until the edges start to lightly get golden.

  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking tray for about 10 minutes before removing the cookies to a cooling rack. The cookies harden when they cool. Removing the from the tray directly after baking might result in breaking the cookies.

  10. Store the cookies in an airtight container to keep them crunchy for longer.
