Recipes Dads Cookies

Updated on May 6, 2017

Not Your Typical Oatmeal Cookies.

These delicious cookies taste much better than those that you purchase off a store shelf. In fact, they are the creme de la creme of the oatmeal cookie world.

Crispy, sweet and tasting just slightly of coconut, these oatmeal cookies put a real twist on the traditional oatmeal cookie. These have flavor, crunch, zip and sweet all rolled into one crispy little cookie.

They don't take a lot of time to prepare and are certainly worth the effort. Made with the whole grain goodness of oats and the sweet distinct taste of coconut they are simply a wonderful little treat to serve up to your family and friends. Give them a try. They are a recipe that you'll find yourself adding into your favorites.

Cookies are Ideal for all Occasion Gift Giving. Deliciously Yummy.

So Let's Analyze Why This Cookie is Such a Nice Treat

Besides the fact that most desserts are sweet which makes them almost automatically a delightful treat, there are generally some ingredients that can make a recipe stand out above another.

Whenever you add in oatmeal, fruit, or nuts you increase the health benefits of your treats. Fortunately most recipes are adaptable and you are able to play with the ingredients somewhat to improve the health factor of your snacks.

This cookie recipe contains both oatmeal and coconut. I also generally add in either raisins or walnuts which increases its nutritional value tremendously. As a between meal snack or a quick breakfast bite these cookies are ideal. It is one of my favorite recipes.

Oatmeal is Soluble Fiber

The health benefits of oatmeal are well known. It is a heart healthy food rich in a bounty of soluble fiber. Oatmeal helps to keep your digestive system humming happily along.

Like most fiber rich foods it helps to keep your bowels moving as they should but what makes oatmeal extra special is the fact that it is soluble fiber. It absorbs cholesterol within it to help safely flush it from the body. Oatmeal truly is a heart friendly food.

      My husband (the dad in our family) would absolutely love these oatmeal cookies and I would, too. I've really come to appreciate coconut and the flavor it adds to food, in this case baked goods. I've pinned, tweeted, and yum'd this recipe and definitely will have to try it soon. Thanks for sharing!
