It’s almost the end of March (can’t believe it!) and that means it’s time for Mystery Dish reveal!! Mystery Dish is a group of talented food bloggers that I joined last month (read more about it here). Each month a list of secret ingredients are selected by a host and group members get to create a unique recipe using two or three of the mystery ingredients (Chopped-style!).
The lovely Kat, from I Want Crazy, was our host this month and she picked these fun ingredients:
- Boxed Cake Mix
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Dried Fruits
It has been a while since I made some oatmeal cookies. Actually a few months since these vanilla pomegranate oatmeal cookies so I had oatmeal cookies in the head when I saw the secret ingredients. Since I always jump at the opportunity to add coconut to everything, I had to take it one step further and create a flavor combination that is unexpectedly superb.
These honey coconut lime oatmeal cookies are just that. The cookies are soft, chewy and chunky and they are filled with crunchy toasted coconut flakes, zest of fresh lime and the sweetness of natural honey. Absolutely delicious and “the best cookie” I’ve made to date according to Mr J (the resident taste tester). The hints of citrus blended with tropical coconut is truly amazing! Try them please 🙂
