Cookies that Make you Eat Them!
Are you ready for another cookie recipe? I sure hope so, becasue these Vegan Chocolate Coconut Cookies are calling your name. And trust me, when they call out to you, you listen. I made a batch and they wouldn’t stop shouting my name. They insisted that I eat them! Every time I walked past the cookie container on the counter, I could hear these chocolate coconut cookies begging me to eat them. So, I did! I ate them until they were all gone. Gotta listen to the cookies:)
And don’t let “vegan cookies” scare you, I promise they are SO good! The cookies are super rich and fudgy. One chocolate coconut cookie will certainly satisfy your chocolate craving, but because they are so good, I kept eating them. I have no self-control when it comes to cookies. Plus, they kept calling my name! I think they even started singing a few Maria songs. I love that there are so many songs made just for me:)
How to Make the Cookies Vegan
The chocolate coconut combo is amazing! I used coconut oil and Almond Breeze’s Almondmilk Coconutmilk Original to make the cookies. The milk gives the cookies a hint of coconut flavor and keeps them super moist and fudgy without using any eggs. For an extra kick of coconut, I rolled the cookies in coconut before baking them. The coconut made the cookies pretty too and I am all about pretty! I promise you won’t be able to tell these chocolate coconut cookies are vegan. They are a chocolate lover’s dream!
Stop and listen closely. Do you hear that? See, I told you! The cookies are calling your name! You better go make a batch of Vegan Chocolate Coconut Cookies right now! Don’t blame me, blame the cookies:) Enjoy!

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1/3 cup Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Original
- 1 1/4 cups sweetened flake coconut divided
- 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.

- 4. Add the flour mixture in two batches, alternately with the coconut milk, with the mixer on low. Stir in 1 cup of the coconut.

Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

Chocolate+coconut can do no wrong in my book.
These cookies look fabulous Maria, and love you used white whole wheat flour! I live near King Arthur Flour, love their white whole wheat.
These look totally incredible! I want to each the whole batch 🙂
Those look so good and I love the coconut and chocolate combo!

Chocolate & Coconut is one of my favorite combos! I love that these are vegan!
I think chocolate and coconut are a great combo together too! I can’t wait to try these, I always feel healthier eating vegan baked treats.
I hope you like them! I can’t wait to bake them again!
How fun!! Love these cute little treats!
I love this idea of adding coconut to chocolate, must taste heavenly! 🙂
Whoa, two of my favorite dessert ingredients in one lovely cookie! Irresistible!
I love how simple these ingredients are! Sometimes vegan recipes have bizarre ingredients I’ve never heard of. And they look so good! 🙂
These cookies are definitely calling my name.
Who can resist a fudgy chocolate cookie? Love the coconut and almond in these!
I think I hear these cookies calling my name! Chocolate and coconut–I can’t resist! 😉
My husband does not eat vegan, he is pure carnivore. However, I made these for a friend who is vegan. Not only were they a hit with the vegan friend, but those she kindly shared with raved about them. Oh, and my husband? Well, let’s say I was lucky to get any of these to our friend.
I am making another batch to take to our friend this weekend. Hope there are some left after hubby samples them.
Just made these cookies…I think the recipe might be missing a step of flattening them. The pictures are of flat cookies but just rolling balls and putting them in the cookie sheet makes round cookies after baking. The dough was also very dry so flattening was just about impossible without the cookies falling apart. Lastly, the coconut you roll them in Brown’s in the oven but the pictures show white coconut. Not sure how that happens. The taste is good but I’m curious how you made the cookies your took pictures of.
These cookies are amazing! We just used regular cocoa powder and unsweetened almond milk and no cocnut extract bc I didn’t have it. These taste like amazing soy free, dairy free brownie bites!! We definitely will make them again.
Glad you liked them!
Can these be frozen when baked? Thanks
Can you sub whole wheat flour for gluten free option?
I’ve made the regular recipe many times and LOVE them but have a friend with celiac’s I want to make them for.
SO YUMMY!!! These cookies are absolutely delicious & easy to make! I’ve already bookmarked the recipe & can’t wait to make them again!!!
Just made these and the only thing I didn’t do, was roll in coconut. Just relied on the coconut in the mix. Maybe next time I will use Miyako butter instead of the c oil. Because of the chocolate. 1 cookies with favorite beverage is enough!
Tastes like a mini brownie.
