Lime-Coconut Oatmeal Cookies – copied



First things first I can not take full credit for this recipe as I copied it from tamaraleighauthor blog (thank you!). I also did not follow the recipe exactly as I was missing a few ingredients (no lime zest and I used raisins in place of Craisins).

The cookies looked so good and of course in my never ending experimentation of using my KitchenAid stand mixer I just had to try these! I am glad I did because they are amazing!


  • 6 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut for cookie tops
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 tbsp for cookie tops
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In large bowl, cream butter,  brown sugar and granulated white sugar with mixer on high speed until light and fluffy
  3. On medium speed, beat in egg, vanilla, lime juice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  4. Beat in 1 cup coconut, Raisins, and oats; stir in flour
  5. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, press a pinch of coconut and 2 Raisins into the tops
  6. Bake 10-12 minutes until cookies are golden but still soft
  7. Remove from oven and transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool (no sneaking a cookie!)
  8. Eat!
