One of Grandma Dorothy's much sought after recipes. These oatmeal cookies are wonderfully chewy and are made with oil instead of butter or margarine so they appeal to the heath conscious. One is never enough!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, white sugar, brown sugar, oats and coconut. Make a well in the center and pour in the oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix well using your hands or a wooden spoon. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with a fork.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, cookies should be a very light brown and chewy - not crisp. Cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

I added 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder because I read the review that said they were flat. They were delicious, pretty, and chewy. I will definitely make them again and again!!

This is my favorite cookie recipes. I printed this one off a couple of years ago. It is my go to recipe for an easy and delicious cookie. My husband goes wild for these! I find that one can decrease the amount of oil and sugar and still have a very delicious and chewy cookie! The trick is not to overbake them and to let them cool a bit before removing from pan. I gave these out to neighbors and friends this year for Christmas. (No one knows my secret--Allrecipes.com!) :)

This was a tasty recipe to mix up and cook quickly. I skipped the coconut and added 1 cup of white chocolate chips. I reduced both sugars to 3/4 c. each, and reduced the oil to 1/2 cup. After mixing, the batter seemed a bit dry, so I put in a tad more oil. Very good flavor, and the texture is great - somehow they are chewy, crispy, and soft all at the same time. The first pan I cooked a full 12 minutes; these came out kind of crunchy, but still a little chewy, and very good. The second and subsequent pans, I cooked more like 9-10 minutes (took them out just before they looked done), let them cool on the pan for 2 minutes. These were our favorites. Delicious recipe and a bit healthier using oil vs. butter. Thanks for sharing it.
