Oatmeal Raisin Coconut Cookies – Nice and Chewy

This Oatmeal Raisin Coconut Cookies recipe has been adapted from several different ones, to come up with the perfect oatmeal raisin cookie. Nice and chewy


The coconut helps keep the cookies chewy and adds a nice flavor.

These are about as close to the ideal of an oatmeal raisin cookie as I can ever hope to find. Crispy on the edges with chewy, but not doughy, centers, and absolutely delicious!

There are a lot of ingredients but the cookies actually come together fairly quickly.

The effort is worth it. These cookies are outstanding!
