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!

    The ingredients listed on the container for the PB are peanuts and salt thats it. I’m not sure if the oils could be hidden somewhere. I will investigate and let you know

  10. That’s what I love about cookies – you can really play around with the ingredients to get them just the way you like them. This combo sounds fantastic! Me and Brad are so with ya’ll – everything is better with lime!

  11. the lime is a totally unexpected ingredient–i love it! oatmeal cookies with raisins are supremely boring compared to this concoction. 🙂

  15. What a great combo of flavors! I love oatmeal cookies, but I’m not a real big fan of raisins. The addition of white chocolate, coconut, and lime sounds delish.
