Ranger Cookies

These cookies have become a regular in my kitchen since I started making them. It seems I kept finding reason after reason to make another batch, until I ran out of coconut! I will be heading to the market to pick up more coconut in order to make more Ranger Cookies this week!

100g of butter, softened
1 cup of azucar rubia (substitute half white, half brown)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/8 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of unsweetened grated coconut
1/2 cup of roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped (substitute other nuts like pecans or walnuts)
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Stir in the vanilla and the egg. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stirring to combine. Gently stir in the coconut, peanuts, and chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon dough by the tablespoonful onto a large baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool cookies for 2 minutes on the baking sheets before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  3. I love peanuts, oatmeal, chocolate, and coconut, so I can’t see how I wouldn’t love these! :) I’m thinking they would probably take well to whole wheat flour too, which is nice since somehow I never seem to have all-purpose in my cabinet. I really want to “think spice” this month but I have kind of a hate-hate relationship with cloves! I love the idea of cloves though, so maybe I’ll see what I can do…

  4. I’m so happy you like this recipe! I’ve been making it repeatedly too…I like that the recipe only makes about 2-2.5 dozen and that the cookies are so versatile!
