Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies made with oatmeal, chocolate chips, and Coconut Flakes. Its the ultimate Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookie!

Ok, so if you have been following me for a while you may know. I love to eat healthy food, but I’m also not one to turn down a big chocolate chip cookie staring me in the face. πŸ™‚ I like to have chocolate chips in the house at all times just in case I {I mean my husband} gets the urge for a chocolate chip cookie. That way I can whip up a quick Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookie or my favorite Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, whenever I want.

Last week I was watching the Pioneer Woman on the Foodnetwork and she was making all kinds of cookie recipes. Which of course, if your human, will make you want to eat cookies. I was trying to think of a way to make cookies that would tell me husband “I’m thinking of you” even though I was really thinking of me and my cookie craving. {don’t judge!} I came up with this Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie. Mike loves fruit added to his cookies, usually its raspberries but he also loves coconut.

I like to use the unsweetened coconut because with the sugar and chocolate chips in the cookie I find it is already sweet enough. These cookies are absolutely amazing. You feel healthy because the majority of the cookie is oats, then you get slight tastes of sweet from the coconut and chocolate chips.Β  Its a great change up to the plain old chocolate chip cookie.

To get started, preheat oven to 350Β°. In a large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cup of regular oats, 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Mix to combine.

    1. You totally need to put coconut in it.. you could enjoy sub coconut oil in for the butter and make it extra coconutty! πŸ™‚

      Thats right, mmy name is Krista and I’m foodnetwork addict. I find it to be inspiring. πŸ™‚ Usually our weekends consist of playing at the park and football watching, so its on during the week for me. Usually around dinner time. πŸ™‚ hehe Hope you have a great rest of the day my friend, thanks for stopping by!

    Hi,

    I love your recipes. I just made these cookies and my husband said they are the best he has ever had. The kids loved them too!:)

    1. Aww.. so sweet! Thanks Joanna! So glad to hear it, we actually made them tonight. My little guy loves him some cookies… I like to call him the cookie monster in our house. Waits by the oven till those bad boys are done. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping in to let me know how they turned out, made my day!

    1. Me too girl! Plus, my son AND husband love them too. So I had to figure out a slightly healthier way to make them or we would end up 40+ overweight. YIKES. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

    1. Hey Rena, I only had quick cook oats in the pantry so I used that but I make this recipe with regular oats normally. So yes, use regular oats not steel cut. πŸ™‚ Hope that helps girl, and GOOD EYE! πŸ™‚

    These cookies are delicious. I have made four batches in the last two weeks. We have had a number of guests in our home recently and these cookies are a big hit. It’s a really simple recipe which makes it a double gold star. Yummy!

    Every red-blooded American boy knows there are no ways to improve the tollhouse chocolate chip cookie. Coconut is mere chickification. The only conceivable improvement is for mom’s or the boys (like I did) to make dozens more in their kitchens. Lotsa milk, too.

  7. Donna

    Oh my goodness,these are heavenly! I confess that because I did not have all purpose flour on hand, I substituted whole wheat flour. They still turned out wonderfully!
