Coconut Oatmeal Crunch Cookies have plenty of coconut, oatmeal, chocolate chips, and lots of Honey Bunchers of Oats crunch.
When I was a child, I always remember my mom buying these packaged coconut oatmeal cookies at the grocery store. It sounds like a strange combination but they were definitely a childhood favorite of mine. Slightly chewy from the oatmeal, slightly crunch from the coconut, these cookies were really good. These Coconut Oatmeal Crunch Cookies, made with Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted, are an updated version on my childhood favorite.
We are big cereal fans in this house. As we all know, breakfast always gets the day started off on the right foot. In my house, we usually start our daily routine with a bowl of cereal. Post cereals are an excellent way to start the morning. Cereal is quick and nourishing, something that is a must for as we are quickly heading off to school and work. Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted is a breakfast favorite of mine. It has the perfect amount of crunch from the oats and sweetness from the honey. But cereals aren’t just for breakfast anymore. Incorporating cereal into baked goods is a perfect way to add extra flavor to desserts and baked goods.
I try to have homemade cookies or granola bars in my pantry at all times. Cookies and a nice glass of milk make the perfect after school snack for the kids. Adults can enjoy them too with milk or even a cup of coffee. These Cookies are all sorts of yum! I added 3 heaping cups of Honey Bunches of Oats Crunchy Honey Roasted to the cookie batter. Adding the cereal to the batter adds a nice extra crunch to the cookie.
The addition of the coconut keeps the cookies moist. I also added chocolate chips, because what is a cookie without chocolate chips. If you love a soft cookie like I do, don’t worry because these turn out nice and chewy – just like I like them.
Honey Bunches of Oats Crunchy Honey Roasted, Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds and Honey Bunches of Oats Gluten Free Chocolate are all available at Wal Mart. The Honey Bunches of Oats Crunch O’s and Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch varieties are also available there too.
I promise you, these babies won’t last long, but if they do, store them in an air-tight container for up to one week. The also freeze really well too. What is your favorite cookie? For me, these Coconut Oatmeal Crunch Cookies rank right up there at the top of my list.
