Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I bake cookies at least three times a week. Yes, I have an addiction. I don’t eat all of the cookies, but of course I have to sample them. We share cookies with our friends, neighbors, and I like to stick some in the freezer for a rainy day. I have a few go-to cookie recipes that I always bake, but I really enjoy trying new recipes. When I saw Little Yellow Kitchen’s recipe for Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies pop up on Tasty Kitchen, I immediately new it was going to be a cookie baking day.

The recipe is inspired by How Sweet It Is and Cooks Illustrated, so it comes with an impressive pedigree. Coconut, oatmeal, cocoa, and chocolate chips—these cookies are loaded with lots of goodies. The cookies also have coconut oil in them, one of my new obsessions. I love using it in baked goods, especially cookies.

Let’s get started! To make the cookies you will need the following ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, butter, coconut oil, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, an egg, vanilla extract, shredded coconut, rolled oats, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. You know these cookies are going to be good just by the ingredient list!

Eat and enjoy! 

These cookies have it all! I love the double dose of chocolate from the cocoa powder and chocolate chips. The coconut flavor isn’t too strong. It is more of a background flavor to the rest of the ingredients, which is nice. I also love the thick and hearty texture the oatmeal and shredded coconut add. I know I said I like to bake a variety of cookie recipes, but I think these Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are going to have to be a staple in my kitchen. I am already craving them. Good thing I tucked a few away in the freezer. I better go find them! 

Thanks Chrissy or sharing this incredible cookie recipe. Coconut and chocolate lovers will go crazy for these cookies! And make sure you visit From the Little Yellow Kitchen. Chrissy and Lauren are always cooking and baking up something good!

Description

These chocolatey-coconut delights are perfectly chewy and delicious. Beware, they will disappear from the cookie jar in a day, tops.

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups (Rounded) Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Room Temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • 1-½ teaspoon Pure Vanilla
  • 1 cup Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preparation Instructions

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In an electric mixer, cream together the butter, coconut oil, and sugars. Scrape down the sides and then add the egg and vanilla; mix to combine. On a low speed, gradually add the flour and cocoa mixture, until incorporated. Add the shredded coconut and oats and mix. Add chocolate chips and mix until just folded in. The dough will be pretty solid. Form into balls about the size of a heaping tablespoon and place on a lined-baking sheet (with a Silpat or parchment paper).

Bake at 350ºF for 11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 2 minutes more on the sheet, then remove and place on a cooling rack, or on an opened brown paper bag. Eat to your heart’s content. They are delicious!

what a fantastic recipe!
would love to invite you to join “all coconut oil related” link-up I’m hosting this month. I would be great to have your recipe there!

Nancy on 9.6.2012

This recipe looks fun and easy to make! I’m going to try it out with my 3 1/2 year old daughter tomorrow. I hope I find coconut oil at the store… if not I’ll get coconut milk – I know they have that. I love how they look crinkled on top too!

Danielle on 9.5.2012

Im going to make these on my day off tomorrow to share with new neighbors. :)

Dana J on 8.30.2012

made this this afternoon and I should have doubled the batch! I didn’t have any unsweetened coconut on hand so i used sweetened and the family DEVOURED them before they were even cool! Definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing them!

Teri myer on 7.4.2012

Love these!! I’ve mad 2 regular batches and I just made a batch with whole wheat flour, splenda, and sugar free chocolate chips… Fabulous! I’m going to serve them at my son’s rehearsal dinner along with my other favorite cookies.

I love everything about these! Choc and coconut combined, gimme gimme!

Amber on 6.20.2012

Just made these tonight. Since I couldn’t find coconut oil, (we live in a really small town) I used the whole stick of butter and 3 tablespoons of coconut milk. They turned out wonderful!

Ashleigh on 6.20.2012

Just made these! It’s so hard to just eat one! So delish!!! The right amount of everything.

Marjorie Rhodes on 6.20.2012

I am also a cookie freak. I made these last night and they were great!

Jeff @ Cheeseburger on 6.20.2012

Thanks, RK for the information on the coconut oil.

Mae25 on 6.19.2012

WOW…I made these last night and they are probably the best cookie that we have ever tasted…my family just LOVED them!!!! Thank you for the recipe!!!!

Danijela on 6.19.2012

This is just delicious, and the pictures are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this recipe, i think these will be on my menu this weekend. Perfect!

RK on 6.18.2012

Judy K — I always find coconut oil in the health food section of our grocery store. It’s a tub container rather than a bottle, since coconut oil solidifies at room temp. Can be used for cooking & as a skin mosturizer!

These cookies look delicious!!

Betsy on 6.18.2012

Perfect and gorgeous to boot! I love me some coconut!!

Travis Cotton on 6.18.2012

Not a big fan of the coco but perhaps these cookies will change my mind.

Judy K. on 6.18.2012

I love coconut and these sound wonderful. Is the coconut oil found near the other oils (vegetable, canola, olive, etc.) in the grocery store? Thanks!
