Coconut Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

These are maybe the best cookies I’ve ever had.  They are not too sweet, and they are packed with whole foods and fiber.  They make a great, balanced afternoon pick-me-up or an on the go snack.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat together:

3 eggs

Then cream with the eggs:

1 c. raw sugar

4 tbsp melted butter

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp liqueur (I used Vana Tallinn, you could also use Kahlua or a strong mexican vanilla)

Into your wet mix, slowly stir in by hand:

1 c. shredded (unsweetened) natural coconut

1 3/4 c. uncooked rolled oats

1/4 cup walnut pieces

Grease your cookie sheet (you can also line with foil) and drop teaspoon sized bits of your cookie batter onto the cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart.  Bake about 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
