I have mentioned Alex before. He was the head cook at our church girls’ camp, where I was the baker and slave. Here is a recipe I only got from him a couple of weeks ago. They really get in your mouth with coconut, oats and Wheaties.
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour
1 cup coconut
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups Wheaties
1. Mix together in order shown above. Stir the Wheaties in by hand and gently, mixing only enough to coat them.
2. Roll or scoop into 2 tablespoon balls. Place on baking sheets covered with baking parchment.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 13 minutes. DO NOT OVER-BAKE! They will be soft on top and just browned on the bottoms and edges.
4. Cool on baking sheet for two minutes before placing onto cooling rack.
