These orange oatmeal cookies are a light, crisp, chewy cookie with a hint of orange and coconut flavor. They are a nice twist on the classic recipe as coconut, orange and walnuts really make them standout. This lightly sweet oatmeal cookie is made with unrefined mascobado sugar, which gives it its caramel undertones and chewy texture. They are seriously delicious, making them a little bit addictive.
A family recipe from Canada
This family recipe for oatmeal cookies has been one that has been passed down through the family for generations. It’s a long standing family favorite. Simple to make and deliciously light. This cookie is a softer cookie, a chewy oatmeal cookie that is only slightly sweet, one with a delicate coconut and orange flavors and plenty of crunchy walnuts, one that is absolutely scrumptious and highly addictive!! You may find yourself falling in love with and making it over and over again and passing it along to your family.
Orange oatmeal cookies — one of my favourites
This probably the second ever cookie that I can truly say took my fancy. The first being goji berry quinoa breakfast cookies which are a guiltless pleasure. When I make a batch of these, I keep them bagged in the freezer and just take out what I need the night before (or even in morning before I head to work). I really love them served warm, right out of the oven, so sometimes I even pop them in the oven just to heat them up a little. So good!
A quick and easy cookie recipe
For fans of quick and easy baking, cookie recipes like this are simply the best! I have friends that absolutely love to bake. They can spend the entire day in the kitchen kneading, rolling, rolling and kneading and whatever else it is they do. And since that isn’t the case for me, I am all the happier when I can bake something that is quick and easy, while also being delicious. That is of course, why you will mainly find baking recipes for quick breads, muffins, cookies and simple cakes on Elle Republic.

Orange Oatmeal Cookies with Nuts and Coconut
Quick and easy to make oatmeal cookies sweetened with unrefined sugar, plus coconut flakes, fresh orange juice, orange rind and plenty of crunchy walnuts.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour Type 550 (130 g)
- 1 cup fine-cut rolled oats (100 g)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup butter (unsalted), room temperature (115 g)
- 2/3 cup brown sugar (I use GEPA organic raw cane sugar Mascobado) (100 g)
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 tablespoon finely grated orange rind
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds (I like walnuts) (50 g)
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened flaked coconut
Preheat the oven to 350°F / 175°C. Grease or line two baking sheets with parchment paper. (Alternatively use one baking sheet, but make sure not to crowd the cookies)
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt. Stir well to blend.
Using an electric mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar, orange juice, orange rind and egg together in a large bowl.
Add the flour mixture to creamed mixture. Mix well.
Stir in the nuts and coconut.
Drop by teaspoons a few centimeters apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and let the oatmeal cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
