Pretty easy to make. I’m a seasoned cook and I put out and measured all the ingredients before I started. They are delicious. I do love orange slices. Will make them again. I did add nuts to the last 12. Even better
Thank you for posting this recipe. These cookies are to die for! I’m not a big fan of coconut but in this recipe it isn’t overpowering and adds a little kick. SO delicious. I very much appreciate your down home cooking videos and am working my way through them. 🥰
Can you leave out the coconut. I do not have any. Will that change the recipe.
We love the added flavor and texture the coconut brings to these cookies, but you can always omit it. It will definitely change the overall taste of the recipe though.
I’m really not a fan of coconut…I’m guessing if I don’t use it the consistency will be off…do I just use more oatmeal?
can i leave out the coconut…??? not a fan
Yes, you can omit the coconut.
Oatmeal is a perfect powder. I have been using it for over 2 years. I love having it for my breakfast. I will try this recipe
