Coconut Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Coconutty. Subtle almond flavor. Packed full of oats. Just plain addicting. These were such a happy accident. I went in the kitchen thinking I was going to make some basic oatmeal cookie and out came these cookies that, to me, are a cross between a coconut macaroon and an oatmeal cookie. Try them and let me know why you think!

Method 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the brown sugar and coconut oil until creamy. Once creamy, add in the eggs one at a time and the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, oats, salt, and baking soda. 

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips + coconut flakes if desired.

Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper and place a tablespoon of cookie dough (or using a cookie scoop) about an inch or two apart. Bake for 11-13 minutes, rotating the pan half way through.

I hope you enjoy + hopefully you have more will power than I do eating these!
