Pina Colada Oatmeal Cookie

Hi Everyone,

Happy Thursday to you!!   Today I have a special treat for you!  You know how I love my Pina Colada’s from past recipes like my Pineapple Coconut Bread, Virgin Pina Colada, Pina Colada Green Monster Smoothie and  Almond Coconut Granola.  I have made several other dishes that use coconut and pineapple.  I think It is just a wonderful tropical combination.  Well today I thought I would share with you my newest tropical cookie, which is the Pina Colada Oatmeal Cookie.

I honestly don’t think you could get more of a Pina Colada taste in any cookie.  These cookies are chewy, with a crispy edge and full of coconut and dried pineapple.  There simply amazing!  If your a fan of Pina Coalda’s, than these cookie are for you!


I made this batch the other night and my Husband and I took them to work to see how they would go over.  We both came home empty handed with rave reviews!!  I didn’t tell my co-workers what the cookies were or what was in them.  I made them guess what they were, and they came close but couldn’t figure out all of the ingredients.  The secret to making these cookies a true Pina Colada taste was the little bit of Pineapple Coconut Rum.  Yah baby yah!!  Rum in cookies?  Love it!!

These cookies are gluten free and contain no butter.  I made the cookies using oat flour, oatmeal, coconut oil, unsweetened coconut, coconut sugar, coconut and vanilla extract and a few other ingredients.  One thing about these cookies is that they spread out when baking them, so be sure to give them plenty of room on you baking sheet.  I made the mistake of putting them to close together and they grew into one big cookie.  However, I don’t find anything wrong with one super large cookie!!  One thing you should know is that these are a flat cookie, which to me is one of my favorite kind of cookies.

I’m kind of sad that I didn’t have any extra cookies, I can go for one right now with a big glass of milk.  I guess after I write my post I should make a quickie batch.  I’m sure my Husband wouldn’t mind.  Than again instead of milk, I should just make a pina colada, but being the good girl that I am, I won’t have a drink during the work week!

I have a question for all you cookie bakers out there.  How do you store your cookies to keep them fresh and crisp?  Every time I make cookies they turn soft on me.  It doesn’t matter what kind of cookie it is either.  Do you store them in a tin?  Plastic Bag?  Tupperware?  On a plate with aluminium foil?  I am stumped on this one!  Please any cookie storage advise would be grateful!!

As I type this, I look at my clock to notice how late it is, than I look to the kitchen sink and look at the pile of dishes that need to be done from dinner.  Ugh!  I HATE doing the dishes. I’ve complained about it before, but really I hate doing them.  So I guess that’s my cue to go.

Oh but before I go, tell me do you have any plans for the weekend?  I want to see the Mathew McConaughey movie, Magic Mike that comes out today.  Normally I wouldn’t rush off to see a movie that just comes out, but it’s Mathew.  Sigh….  he he, giggle, giggle

Have a wonderful Thursday!!

Toodles,

Jennifer
