  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together the oats, coconut and cashews in a large bowl, then drizzle with the honey. Mix to combine, then spread on one of the prepared cookie sheets. 
  3. Toast the mixture in the oven until the coconut begins to brown and the mixture becomes fragrant, about 8 minutes. Allow to cool about 10 minutes. 
  4. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl, then whisk in the toasted oat mixture. Set aside. 
  5. Cream the butter, sugars and vanilla together in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until sandy and smooth. Beat in the egg, then scrape the bowl and beater. Add the flour mixture and white chocolate chips and blend on low speed to combine. Scoop 2-tablespoon portions of dough on 2 lined cookie sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Flatten the cookies just slightly, then sprinkle each cookie with a touch of coarse salt. Bake until the edges are golden and the cookies are puffed, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then enjoy!  

Cook’s Note

When measuring flour, spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
