So This Guy Walks Into Rosemary, A Coconut...

...and puts it in his oatmeal cookies. Since Salt is away this week, I've decided to make the oatmeal cookies I probably should have made two weeks ago instead of the eh, so-so ones I threw together before vacation. This week I made Guy Fieri's [Not So] Craisy Oatmeal Cookies, without the dried cranberries. The recipe was actually really easy to make. I just love how he threw the coconut in the cookies to make them extra-moist, but the thing that really threw me was the rosemary. Yes, rosemary. I was a little leery at first, but the cookies turned out pretty good.

So, here's the recipe. Please make it and let us know how you like them. Also, get your voting minds ready for Salt's return so you can vote on what we make next week.

Guy Fieri's Craisy Oatmeal Cookies

(Not So Craisy when Sugar Made Them)
Copyright 2010 Guy Fieri, Food Network


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (I added a little extra)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries (Omitted by Sugar)
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, soda, powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with a mixer. Mix in honey and vanilla until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Mix in coconut, dried cranberries, oats and rosemary. Fold dry ingredients into butter mixture. Form into balls, approximately 2 tablespoons. Place 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake until cookies turn golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven to cooling rack. Let sit 5 minutes in the pan before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Happy Baking!!



The way to a man’s heart is undoubtedly through his taste buds.

Did you use raisins instead or did you just omit the fruit altogether? These look delicious! How creative to add coconut! I love Guy.

I just omitted the fruit altogether. I wasn't in the mood. :) Guy ROCKS!

These sound super tasty! I'm so happy to see two people who are for Guy. I love him, and the boyfriend can't stand him.

And I love any recipe where I get to sift! I love sifting ingredients! (Weird I know!)
