*1 cup white chocolate chips
*2 pints caramel ice cream (I used Ben & Jerry's Dulce Delish)
*Preheat oven to 350*F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
*Beat butter with an electric mixer until creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the sugar and brown sugar. Beat 2 minutes, until fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined.
*Beat in the baking soda, baking powder, salt and coconut extract.
*Add in the oats, followed by the flours, beating until just combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips by hand.

*Scoop ice cream onto half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
