The recipe is adapted from my cookie making bible: 101 More Things to Do with a Cake Mixby Stephanie Ashcraft. Anytime I use her cake mix cookie recipes, I can proudly display them (instead of covering the plate with tin foil.) Oh, and they taste really good too!
Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 chocolate cake mix (Stephanie suggests a yellow or white cake mix. We like to use a chocolate cake mix instead.)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c butter softened
- 1/2 c coconut
- 1 1/2 quick oats
- 1 c dark chocolate chips
Mix cake mix, eggs and butter. Stir in coconut, oats and chips. Drop using a melon-ball tool or rounded spoon on to a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 9 to 12 minutes.
Stephanie Ashcroft isn’t paying me for this little promo, but I really think her cake mix cook books are gems! Because of her cook books, I always stock up on cake mix when I see it for less than a dollar and I am never intimidated by invitations to “bring a dessert.”
