Prep Time: 
Cook Time: 
2 cups oats
1 cup light brown sugar packed
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
How to make it 

Mix oats and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Pour oil over oatmeal mixture, and toss well to combine. Set aside for one hour.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Add egg, salt, almond extract, and coconut. Mix well.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

With a teaspoon, scoop out rounded spoonfuls onto the parchment paper, leaving about 2" around the perimeter of the cookies, which will spread as they bake.

Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool for several minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
