Yield: 24
  • ½ cup coconut oil, softened
  • ⅔ cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups rolled oats (old-fashioned oats)
  • 1½ cups unsweetened coconut shreds
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water thoroughly. Add the coconut oil, sugar, and vanilla extract and beat until creamed.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and rolled oats. Stir.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir until just combined. Fold in the unsweetened coconut shreds.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, foil, or a silpat. Drop 1½ inch balls of dough onto the baking sheet 2 inches apart and press them down a little (they don't spread much). Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on a rack before serving.
