These coconut and oat cookies are pretty addicting. I’m surprised there where any left to photograph the day after I baked them, they just kept disappearing one by one.
The not-so-secret ingredient in these magical chewy puffs of delight is Garam Masala. That’s right, Garam Masala! The blend has a beautiful flavor and it doesn’t have to be used just in savory dishes!!!
Here’s the recipe, it makes about three dozen:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons Garam Masala
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat together butter and sugars. Add the egg and beat well. Combine flour, baking powder, garam, and salt. Gradually add this mix to the butter mixture and mix well. Slowly stir in the coconut and oats.
Form the dough into balls, roughly 2 teaspoons worth of dough in size, space evenly on your baking sheet and bake 10 mins or until the edges become a lovely golden brown. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes then move to a wire rack to continue cooling.
They should be good for a few days in an airtight container (if you can stop people from eating them).
