Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Coconut Cookies

by Chrissy

Calling all cookie lovers, this one is for you.

Sometimes, the familiar, although comfortable and always dependably delectable, can become a little mundane. So here, I bring you a varied version of an old fan favorite–the Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Coconut Cookie.

Add a little extra flavor with more vanilla extract and coconut flakes, and you have just  stumbled-upon your new go-to cookie recipe.

Let me walk you through these few simple steps:

Cream the butta’.


Combine the sugars and the butta’.


Beat the eggs, add the vanilla extract and the almond milk, until perfectly combined.

Beat in the flour mixture (of white & wheat flours, baking soda, salt). Mix in the oats, then the chocolate chips, and lastly the coconut.


Drop on silpat-covered baking sheet.


Bake for about 8 minutes, then quickly remove from the oven to add a pinch of coconut flakes on each cookie, slightly pressing it onto the top. Return to the oven and finish cooking until golden brown, about 5 more minutes.

 Let cool on sheet for a minute, then remove to let cool on a wire rack or brown paper bag.




Don’t let them cool and pour yourself a hearty glass of milk, turn into a Cookie Monster and have at it!

Yep. Total Cookie Monster. And I couldn’t be happier!

  11. Wonderful idea for these cookies! I have always wanted to add some coconut to choc-chip cookies, (but never got around to doin so) ever since having the tiny Trader Joe chocolate chip cookies. They had a yummy flavor: sure enough, the ingredients label showed coconut was in them.

    Hi Marcee! The “print” link is coming soon! It’s it something that we have to do to the site, next on the list! I can send you a friendly print version, though :)

  15. Love cookies and these look fantastic…. but can i make them without the coconut

  16. Chrissy

    Yes, you certainly can make them without the coconut, just substitute 3 Tbsp of butter for the coconut oil; if you don’t want to add the shredded coconut, you can add about 3/4 cups oats in it’s place.

    You will have a chocolatey oatmeal cookie loaded with chocolate chips! Enjoy!

  17. Thanks Chrissy will definitely try it!
