A saucepan becomes the mixing bowl in these super simple cookies that bake just a few minutes in the oven. If you wish, use the coconut/chocolate variation which adds additional flavor levels to these chewy and crunchy cookies.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets and set aside.
  2. In a medium-large saucepan combine butter, granulated and brown sugars. Cook and stir over medium heat until melted and well blended. Remove from heat.
  3. Add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
  4. Add eggs and mix well. If desired stir in OPTIONAL coconut and coconut flavoring.
  5. Drop by rounded teaspoons 3 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets, stirring the dough in pan often. (Cookies spread considerably so don't crowd on cookie sheets. My 12" x 18" pans had room for just 12 cookies at a time.)
  6. Bake for 6-7 minutes or until edges are JUST BEGINNING to turn golden brown (see Photo #2 for top and bottom doneness.)
  7. Remove from oven and cool cookies 1-2 minutes ON COOKIE SHEETS; then remove from pans and cool on wire rack. (Do not leave on cookie sheets longer that 1-2 minutes or they will be difficult to remove.)
  8. OPTIONAL CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE: Heat chocolate chips and shortening over low heat just until melted, stirring occasionally. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Allow to cool completely until chocolate is firm before attempting to store.
  9. Yield: About 4 1/2 dozen.
