Oatmeal Cookies with Lime, Coconut, and White Chocolate

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!

  11. Robin Sue — March 25, 2009 @ 6:28 am

    I just toasted some coconut and can’t stop eating it so I think these cookies are wonderful! What nice flavors. Oatmeal has to be about my favorite cookie too besides an old fashioned chocolate chip cookie. Will bookmark this!

  12. Elle — March 25, 2009 @ 6:28 am

    Great flavor pairing! And they look so good!

  13. Cathy — March 25, 2009 @ 6:29 am

    Looks like you’ve invented a wonderful cookie! I’ve never had lime in cookies until trying Dorie’s coconut butter thins (just last night) and I’m hooked! And if I liked that one, which had coconut it it (not one of my favorites), I know that I will LOVE this one with oatmeal and white chocolate!!! So glad that your sweetie enjoyed these!

  14. Maria — March 25, 2009 @ 6:33 am

    Thanks everyone! I really liked the flavor and the oatmeal base was fantastic!!

    I LOVE lime!! I bet those are GREAT!!

  20. Kelly — March 25, 2009 @ 7:41 am

    Ever since I developed my recipe for white chocolate lime cookies I have been facinated by the combo. Yours adds coconut and oats … wowie, that looks yummy!

  21. Live.Love.Eat — March 25, 2009 @ 7:47 am

    I think I would really like these. It reminds me of the silly song I love, you out the lime in the coconut, you stir it all up. or something like that.

    Anyhoo, yes, I have been to Palm Beach many times. My sister lives just South, I live 3 hrs North and my best friend lives in West Palm. It’s a great place. Say hello to the palm trees everywhere.

  22. Theresa — March 25, 2009 @ 8:04 am

  26. Allie — March 25, 2009 @ 8:17 am

    How do you manage to take everything I love and turn it into a cookie?!? If I didn’t have 2 batches of cookie dough in the fridge already, I’d so be making these today! Definitely bookmarking though.

    As for chocolate frosting, I use the recipe my grandma has been using for ages. I dunno where she got it so I just call it hers, but the recipe is here: Sometimes I have to add more milk to it.

  34. The Blonde Duck — March 25, 2009 @ 10:59 am

    That looks so good! I’m not into lime, so I’ll try caramel or butterscotch!

  35. pinkstripes — March 25, 2009 @ 11:02 am

    Great flavor combo. I’m sure the texture of the oatmeal played great with the lime and coconut. I’m glad they were a success.

  36. stephchows — March 25, 2009 @ 11:12 am

    Totally a fun combination :) Taking risks is always so much fun and so exciting when they work out!

  37. sugarlens — March 25, 2009 @ 11:16 am

    Very creative! Those cookies look and sound delicious!

  38. April — March 25, 2009 @ 11:23 am

    They sound fantastic! Great job on your own creation!

  39. Foodie with Little Thyme! — March 25, 2009 @ 11:35 am

    OK, what a great idea. I love the lime and coconut idea! You go Girl!

  40. Sara — March 25, 2009 @ 12:14 pm

    What a great flavor combination! I know some people don’t really like white chocolate, but I love it.
