Chewy and buttery coconut cookies are filled with white chocolate M&M’s!
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl using a mixer with paddle attachment, beat butter, both sugars, vanilla and coconut extract until creamy. Beat in the egg. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until it’s all combined. Add coconut and mix to combine. Stir in all but ½ cup of the M&M’s.
Drop tablespoon sized scoops of dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Press remaining M&M’s into the tops of each cookie.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
Made with quinoa, whole grains and oats, these healthy cookies are perfect to grab on-the-go! Almonds, cranberries, chocolate chips and coconut add a subtle sweetness. After one bite, your taste buds will be partying.
One of my favorite candy bars is the Heath chocolate covered toffee bar. Heath makes a toffee chip for baking. They are very small and mix well for a well distributed flavor. I took one of my old oatmeal cookie bar recipes and tweaked it to include these chips and also some chocolate chips. They are tasty and crispy and even more so after fully cooling overnight. That is, if they last overnight!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
