(I first made these on June 7, 2008)
Mix together and spread 2 cups coconut and 2 cups oatmeal (old-fashioned, OR quick) on a shallow cookie pan and heat in a 350-degree PRE-heated panggangan until coconut is rich golden brown– watch carefully, and stir as needed. When finished, it should look something like this…
Set aside until you do the following.
Mix the following ingredients together—
3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed (I used dark brown this time)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups flour
1/2 cup 100% whole wheat flour
Now, stir in the browned coconut and oatmeal mix and stir until well blended.
Form into 1.5″ balls. Lightly press with hand, or bottom of a glass. BAKE 13-14 minutes at 350-degrees or until their tops aren’t so soft (I bake mine on a shiny surfaced pan that’s lined with parchment paper and they are done in about 13-14 minutes.)
