Preparation time: 15 minutes
- 1 cup salted butter, softened
- 1 cup coconut oil, melted
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup dried, unsweetened flaked coconut
- 1 cup cornflakes cereal
- 1 cup chocolate chips or chopped nuts of choice
- 1 cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy with an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Slowly add oil and mix until oil is well incorporated. Beat vanilla extract and egg in until well incorporated.
Mix flour and baking soda together and stir into butter mixture just until combined. Combine remaining ingredients and add to dough, mixing just until incorporated.
Using a small cookie scoop drop tablespoonful sized cookie dough balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet spacing about 1 inch apart (they won’t spread much). Bake in preheated oven for 7-12 minutes, just until lightly browned.
You can also freeze individual balls of cookie dough and freeze for later baking. To bake simply place frozen cookie dough onto sheet (there’s no need to defrost) and bake as directed (adding a few minutes to cook time).
