Coconut seems to be an often forgotten food. Well, we never want to forget about this amazing flavor. We love our Oatmeal Coconut Cookies. Here are some quick facts that may help to keep coconut in your kitchen (information from Discovery Health.com):
• The oil in coconut has unique abilities to fight off bad bacteria while leaving the good bacteria
• The antibacterial functions of coconut can help prevent or soothe infections
• Coconut oil is great for cooking because it remains stable. The benefits of the oil are not damaged by heating and will remain in the oil.

- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in egg, vanilla and milk and mix until smooth. In separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients with the wet. Once all are combined and smooth, add oats and coconut. Beat mixture well. Drop tablespoon scoops of cookies 2 inches apart on well-greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

These are even better with the addition of 3 T. unsweetened cocoa powder to the cookie dough before baking.
