Sweet Treat Tuesday-Perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe on My Kitchen Cafe and decided to make them today for dessert tonight at small group. I think they turned out very yummy. Mine were a "fuller" cookie than hers. Hers were actually very flat, and mine definitely were not, but I liked them that way.

Perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
slightly adapted from My Kitchen Cafe


1 cup oatmeal (not quick)
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoons vanilla
1 cup coconut (I used about 1/3 cup)
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the top 4 ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend about 30 seconds until coarse. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter for 30 seconds until light in color. Add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Next, add the dry ingredients then add the coconut and chocolate chips. Shape cookie dough into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Let the cookies cool slightly before removing them from the pan to a wire rack. Makes about 2 dozen cookies. (I used a cookie scoop that made about 1 inch balls and I yielded about 56 cookies.)
