These oatmeal cookies are so soft and chewy with toasted coconut flakes and raisins. They just melt in your mouth, they are so good!

Soft oatmeal coconut and raisin cookie recipe.

My husband and I host youth Bible studies on Monday nights. I usually make the youth something to snack on and then the ladies take turns bringing in desserts for fellowship and tea. Last week, one of them brought in oatmeal cookies with coconuts and they were soo amazing, I couldn’t help myself and have too many to count. The combination of oatmeal with coconut was surprisingly extremely delicious. Of course the next day I got to recreate the recipe because that’s what bloggers do (Or that’s what I do when trying a new recipe. Usually, when I try something new while out and about, I cannot wait to try and recreate it at home and pay a fraction of the price for a homemade version, true story). So the first batch I baked was okay but too hard for my taste. I truly think the best kind of cookie is one that is chewy and soft when bitten into. The second batch I made I tried toasting the oatmeal and loved them toasted but the cookies were still a little too sweet. The third batch was BOMB delicious!! We couldn’t get enough of them. My kiddos don’t really care for raisins but they didn’t even notice them in the recipe. So, my friends. I am pretty excited to share this recipe with you. It’s a labor of hard work – for you (and myself and my family, of course! 🙂

I love baking cooking like these because they aren’t messy and they aren’t too sweet either to enjoy. They are a perfect blend for that sweet craving you may get.
