They are chewy, gooey, sweet, and rich. They are the perfect cookie bar. They are simple to change up and personalize. You can add this or take out that. No one said you had to be like me and make this exact bar. Cookies are funny like that- they can take on our personalities.
All I am saying is, when life gives you lemons, you tell them to squeeze off and have one of these cookies.... life will be back to nom nom normal once again.
|I topped this batch with chocolate shavings too - to make it more amazing!|
|Pictured without the coconut flakes added. Because sometimes I don't want coconut flakes; Others I do|
What you need:
1 1/2 cups Quick Oats
1 cup Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Stick Butter, softened
1 1/4 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp Coconut Extract
1 cup Sweetened Coconut Flakes
1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips + handful for top
1 tbsp Water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy. Next, add the egg, vanilla, water, coconut, and salt.
Stir in the flour, coconut flakes, and oats until combined. At this point you can mix in the chocolate chips.
Butter your 8X8 baking dish and pour in the batter. Finally, top with the remaining chocolate chips.
Bake 35-40 minutes, or until the top has browned and the edges are crisp.
|Hurry now and eat some! These will go fast!|
|You don't have o put the chocolate chips on top and you can just mix them all in. |
These will still taste amazing, and will be a little less messy!
Thanks for baking with us!
