Oatmeal Macaroons…crunchy deliciousness!

I have fond memories of my Aunt Lora’s cookies, and all baked goods.  Several years ago while I was visiting family in Iowa, I stopped by to see Aunt Lora and Uncle Max and enjoyed her Oatmeal Macaroons.

They are delicious and the crunch of the toasted oatmeal and coconut are a wonderful combination.  Yummy and another fond Iowa memory.

OATMEAL MACAROONS

3 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put the oatmeal on a cookie sheet and toast in a slow oven until lightly browned. Watch the oatmeal very closely so it doesn’t burn. Remove from oven.

  • Mix butter and sugar. Add beaten eggs. Add dry ingredients, oatmeal and coconut. Mix well.
  • Drop teaspoon of batter on greased cookie sheet until lightly browned (6-8 minutes).

Optional:  Add chocolate chips or white chocolate chips to the batter.
