Cookie Time

I will be visiting my brother and a few friends this weekend and made a bunch of cookies today to take with me. My brother wanted chocolate chips in the cookies and so here are delicious White chocolate almond raisin coconut cookies with oats! Quite a mouthful :) 


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Mix the wet ingredients: 1.5 cups of sugar, 1 stick butter, 1/2 cup ghee (I ran out of butter hence substituted ghee) -- cream together. Add 2 eggs, flavor (I used Kentucky bourbon sorghum vanilla syrup!).
  • Add the dry ingredients while mixing: 2 tsp baking soda, 2.5 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Stir in the add-ons: 1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, 1/4 cup coconut flakes, 1/4 cup rolled oats.
  • Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
  • Use a ice-cream scoop, space them well apart and bake for 12-15 minutes till golden
  • Cool and enjoy!
With these amounts and a standard scoop, I got about 52 cookies.

  1. Hello Bala!

    My name is Alex and I work for Frieda's, a specialty produce company that sells exotic fruits and vegetables to grocery stores all over the country. I wanted to let you know about an event called Produce 101 that will take place on 5/19 at all Copps supermarket locations. They will be sampling tropical fruits, such as Lychee, Papaya and Persimmon. Have you cooked with any of these ingredients before? I know Persimmons are popular in baking.

    Anyways, I would love to chat with you about sending you samples to cook with and possibly blog about before the event on the 19th. If you're interested, send me an email at



Thanks for the comments, we appreciate them!
