Cookies Baked in a Jar

Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Coconut Cookies in a Jar

1 1/4 c. certified gluten-free rolled oats
1 1/4 c. oat flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 c. coconut oil, at room temperature
3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 c. sweetened, shredded coconut
1 c. raisins
1 c. dark chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli 60% cocoa)

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray six 8-ounce canning jars with cooking spray.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.
4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the coconut oil, both sugar, and vanilla until creamy.
5. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
6. With the mixer on low, gradually beat in the flour mixture, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
7. Fold in the coconut, raisins, and chocolate chips.
8. Fill the prepared jars 3/4 full with the cookie dough. Bake for 15-18 minutes. The cookies will be slightly under-baked and will have a lightly golden top, not a dark one.
9. Let the jars cool completely on the baking sheet. Then, you can dive in, preferably with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or you can package these babies up and give them as gifts!
Makes 6 8-oz cookie jars.
