That’s right, the marriage of a cookie and a muffin! What could get better? That means you have my permission to eat these for breakfast AND dinner- mmmmmm (forget those New Years Resolutions by now- lets be real!) 🙂

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups regular rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened dried shredded coconut


1. Mix butter and brown sugar until thoroughly blended. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, salt, and baking powder. Blend oat mixture with butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and coconut.

2. Place scoops of dough (using an ice cream scoop works best, that’s where we get our good muffin-like size) 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Back at 350 degrees until mookie edges are golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Cool on rack and serve!
