Oatmeal Cookies with Lime, Coconut, and White Chocolate

I recently created a special cookie for my Joshua. He loves my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so I used the oatmeal dough as the base. He is also in love with everything lime, so I added in lime zest and a couple drops of fresh lime juice. I wasn’t sure how the juice would take to the cookies, so I just added a little. I had a good thing going, so I continued on.

Next, I added in coconut and chopped chunks of premium white chocolate. Oh yea, now we are talking. An oatmeal cookie with lime, coconut, and white chocolate. I tested the dough and was pretty confident in my creation.

After I pulled them from the oven and allowed them to cool, it was time for the taste test by the one and only, Joshua. He was excited to try “his” special cookie. Luckily, it was a winner. He loved my new creation! It was fun playing around with a new recipe for my sweetie!

Oatmeal Cookies with Lime, Coconut, and White Chocolate

(Printable Recipe)

½ c. brown sugar

1/2 c. white sugar

1/2 cup softened unsalted butter

1 egg

1 tsp. Vanilla

Zest of 1-2 limes (I used 2)

A couple drops of fresh lime juice

1/4 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Baking powder

1/2 tsp. Baking soda

1 1/4 c. flour

1 1/4 c. oats

About 3/4 cup coconut

About 1 cup white chocolate chunks (or chips)

Cream the butter with the sugars until soft and creamy, using a mixer. Add in egg and vanilla. Add in lime zest and juice. Mix briefly. In a separate bowl combine the salt, baking powder, soda, flour. Add to wet ingredients. Mix until blended. Add your oats and then your coconut and chocolate.

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes! Don’t let them get too done…they are better when they are soft!
