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. Me neither.. I am not sick of them.. I don’t think I ever will… I am a huge fan of coconut… coconut perfume.. you name it, if I could buy Hawaiian Tropic in a bottle I would…

    Um.. So delish…

  2. Oooh — I bet coconut adds the perfect touch! Thanks for the heads up about cooking time — I am sure that I would overcook without that warning. Oh, and your scones from yesterday look seriously delicious as well!

  3. Oatmeal chocolate chip are my favorite kind of cookies! I never thought to add coconut! mmm 😉 Hope you having a nice one.

  4. I NEVER get sick of the cookie recipes! This one looks good, I will have to try it out this week. It was so great seeing you!! We will need to spend more time together when I come to Utah again. Guess what…? My parents have their house up for sale and are buying a house in Oakley. Random, huh?

  5. I should not have looked at these..yummmy! I love oatmeal, coconut and well chocolate! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  6. Loved seeing your pictures of the snow – I just wish I was somewhere warm looking at them. 🙂

  7. Those cookies are right up my alley! I love coconut, love chocolate chip cookies and love oatmeal cookies! You’re a woman after my own heart! haha

  8. AMAZING cookies!!!

    **Just as a heads up: I will not be able to comment on blogs as often now, during this semester, due to work overload (I’m stressed already) – PLEASE know that I’m still loyally reading, but just won’t have time to comment. I hope you understand!!

  9. Oatmeal cookies are my favourite. And can be eaten when I wake up because… oatmeal!
    Today I am baking with blueberries and lemon and it is all your fault. 🙂

  10. i’m fairly certain that i’ll never grow tired of cookies, and if i do, it’ll be a sad, sad day indeed. i love your combination of add-ins–very nice.

  11. I’m not sick of seeing more cookie recipes, not at all!!!! Love all you’ve created so far! 😀

  12. this is a healthy and delicious cookie. Coconut has healing properties, oatmeal is plain healthy and chocolate has antioxidants. Yeh!

  13. I made these last night and they are sooooo incredibly good! And dangerous! My boyfriend and I couldn’t stop eating them.

  14. 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. 🙂

  15. I had coconut chocolate chip cookies in portland the last time I was there and have been craving them over since! The dough is delish – the cookies were yum!

  16. This, my friends, is an ideal cookie. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and a delicious flavor with a coconut crunch. Perfection!

  17. Made these yesterday for the office – they were all gone a few hours later. The only thing I would do is add more coconut but thats just me. Oh and dont go past 12 minutes as the recipe suggest – any longer and you’ll have rocks.

  18. I made these today while the baby was sleeping…  and WOW!  They were delicious – perfect combination and just the right sweetness!  Thank you for sharing!  Definitely a keeper!!

  19. Tried these today! Omg they are a BOMB! My hubby adores coconut and melted choc chips.
    One remark – balls of dough did not melt into flat cookie shapes. I had to press them down with a fork half way through. And second batch was shaped into flat cookies from the beginning. Didn’t affect deliciousness of this miracle of course! Yuummmmmm!!!!

  20. Just made these, they are delicious. Used toasted coconut flakes and they came out so yummy!

  21. These cookies turned out amazing. They are soft and gooey and not starchy. Great recipe. Thank you!!

  22. I have made this recipe. It has become my grandson’s favorite cookie! What’s not to love? Can’t go wrong with chocolate and coconut. Sometime I use a variety of chocolate chips… equally delicious.

  23. 5 stars
    Amazing!!! This is one of the best cookies I’ve ever eaten! The texture was beyond perfect: chewy inside, a bit crispy on the outside, and melt in your mouth delicious! My partner said they were the best she’d ever eaten, like a Girl Scout Samoa, but wayyy better! Thank you SO much for this AWESOME recipe!!!

    Made these this morning.  Flavor was good, I eliminated the white sugar and increased the brown sugar to 3/4 cup.  As I don’t care for soft cookies, I increased the bake time to 18 minutes…still weren’t crisp enough for my taste.  Otherwise, I like the flavor but wish they were crisper.

  25. 5 stars
    These were scrumptious! I added walnuts, too, and used Crisco because I was out of butter. Definitely make these and eat them!!

    Hi! These have become my go-to cookies and have made me famous amongst friends and fam. Everyone adores them. Particularly delish when they are a couple of hours fresh out of the oven, but still yum the next day. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! 

  27. 5 stars
    So, so good!  I tried them with a half cup of chocolate chips and a half cup of caramel chips.  Turned out so sweet and chewy and perfect!  Thanks for the recipe; I will definitely keep using it!

  28. These cookies are delicious! I used sea salt and Ghirardelli mini chocolate chips. Next time I’ll double the batch and cook a minute or two less. Five stars! Thank you!

    If I could give these cookies a higher rating, I would. They’ve become a family favourite and I often make them – they go so quick I double it every time and make about 50 cookies! I chop up two blocks of Whittaker’s dark Ghana for the chocolate, and it takes the cookies to a new level of irregular chocolatey heaven :)) thank you for this recipe!

  30. These are great! Easy to make. I also love that the recipe is for a good amount and not 4,5,6 dozen. For my personal taste they are a bit sweet. Do you think I could half the sugar in the dough and still maintain the integrity of the overall cookie? Thanks.

  31. Trying them for the first time – I doubled the recipe, using two jumbo size eggs and then found I needed to add an extra egg to make it all come together. Love the idea of chocolate (yummy), coconut (chichis anyone) and oatmeal (git yer Scot on) in one cookie

    1. I used minute oats, only brown sugar and I toasted my coconut also and flattened them a bit before baking.
      The middle was soft and edges crunchy. Soooo good!

  32. OMG!
    This recipe is sooo delicious. The cookie is soft in the middle and crispy on the edges. Perfection!
    Thanks for sharing your recipe.
    Note: I flattened my cookies a bit before baking.

    These were so good! I used quick oats bc I didn’t have rolled, but texture was still great! I don’t always love the texture of shredded coconut but it blended in well! My kids loved these, crispy and chewy all at the same time, I will definitely make again!

    Just made these cookies for the long weekend and they’re so yummy!! I followed the recipe as is and it turned out great!! Will definitely add this to the cookie rotation. Thanks for sharing!

    So easy and delicious! So chewy and chocolate! Appoved by my 21 year old son…he ate 8 in one sitting! I made a second batch with chopped pecans! Even better!
    Thanks for another amazing cookie recipe Maria!

    Love these cookies!!! Still soft and chewy the next day which is so important to me! I made a few tweaks and thought I’d share them. I used quick oats as opposed to traditional to keep the consistency with the shredded coconut more similar (personal preference). Also I made the first half of the batch without chocolate chips added, and instead I placed a milk chocolate square on top (or buried in the dough) and that was really really yummy! Of course the chocolate chips are also great, but I think I prefer the flavour of the milk chocolate with the coconut. You could even make these without the chocolate chips and they are still to die for! Thank you so much!!

    Best biscuit I’ve made in along time, I altered the quantity of butter to only 105 grams and used a mixture of milk and white chocolate, left in for 15 minutes, has a nice crunch

  38. Hello!! These are ideal cookie for I love coconut, oats and chocolate! I’ve made them 3x now but 2 of the 3 times the dough was too goopy and the cookies didn’t form well. I made sure to have room temp butter – not right from the fridge. Have double checked the measurements too! Any thoughts on why it’s too runny? Thanks! 🙂

  39. 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.

  40. 5 stars
    These are amazing! My Husband always wants me to make them and they are definitely our new favorites.

  41. 5 stars
    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.

  42. 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!

  43. 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!
