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!

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Roll the cookie dough into balls or use a cookie scoop, about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie. Place on a large baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat, about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until tops are slightly golden. They will still be soft. Let sit on cookie sheet for 2 minutes and transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

  1. Love these cookies! Next time I make them, and there definitely will be a next time, I will add more chocolate chips. Just a personal preference. I’m a chocoholic.

    This is my favorite cookie recipe. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m making my second batch this week. Can’t seem to keep any in the cookie jar.

  4. Hi Mara: You might want to change your recipe as the next step after preheating the oven goes directly to shaping the dough to put in the oven!

  5. I had unsweetened coconut in my pantry and came across this recipe in my attempt to use it. Turns out these cookies are delicious!! They will be a regular in my house from now on and I intend to share with friends and family. I just love it when internet search end so well. Thanks for a delicious and unexpected Easter treat!

  6. After trying for the first time (and they were amazing) I used same recipe using an extra half stick of butter & used 1/2 of chocolate chips + 1/2 caramel chips (sticking to your ratio) and then added 1/4 cup marshmallows and they were also amazing)

    Thank you so much for the recipe!!
