Cranberry Coconut Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies

The first time I mentioned making this cookie to my kids, they were not all that enthusiastic about me baking them. After making all the basic cookies that I could possibly find, it was time to venture out of my comfort zone and try something new out. Never would I have thought, to mix oatmeal and coconut with white chocolate. That just sounds like the weirdest combination I have ever even heard of. After some thoughtful consideration, my oldest looked at me and said “Mom, don’t knock it until you try it”. So that’s what I did. I made up a batch of Cranberry Coconut Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies. Whew, that’s a mouthful.

When I think of a cookie, I think of something that is soft and chewy, with chocolate oozing out of every bite and it fits perfectly in a cold cup of milk. I will also be the first to tell you, that when I think of a cookie, it does not include coconut or oatmeal. After baking this mix, I tell you, I am seeing coconut and oatmeal in a whole new perspective now. Who would have thought that all of these flavors would mingle together and create a cookie that is not only soft and chewy but dunks perfectly into a cup of milk?! Are you ready to try them out?

These are the ingredients you will need for my Cranberry Coconut Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies:

INGREDIENTS

2/3 cup butter, room temperature

2/3 cup light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries

1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chunks

1/2 Coconut
