Makes 15 servings
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup light brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
How to make it
Mix oats and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Pour oil over oatmeal mixture, and toss well to combine. Set aside for one hour.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Add egg, salt, almond extract, and coconut. Mix well.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
With a teaspoon, scoop out rounded spoonfuls onto the parchment paper, leaving about 2" around the perimeter of the cookies, which will spread as they bake.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool for several minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
