Recipe for Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe for Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know everyone is probably sick of cookies and cookie recipes, but NOT me! The holidays did not burn me out. Cookies hold a special place in my heart. They just make me happy…and my tummy happy too!

We had some friends over to watch a movie, so of course I had to bake a treat! I was in the mood for oatmeal cookies and they are Josh’s favorite too! I wanted something a little different though. This time I added coconut and chocolate chips! A divine combo indeed! We especially loved these with a glass of cold milk!! These are the perfect dunkaroos!

Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes


1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oats, old fashion
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Cream together sugars and butter with a mixer. Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Slowly add in flour mixture. Stir in oats and coconut. Add in chocolate chips. Shape to form 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake 10-12 minutes or until tops are golden. They will still be soft. Let sit on cookie sheet for 2 minutes and transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

    I was looking for a good cookie recipe to use up the coconut I had and this is definitely it! I just whipped it up and have already sampled the first batch – delicious! I like the proportions of ingredients too – they don't overpower each other. :)
