Coconut and chocolate. I mean, really, can you go wrong? These cookies are soft, chewy, and substantial. They’re full of flavor and texture. They’re a cookie you need to make like right now.
I was perusing Pinterest (follow Golden Barrel on Pinterest here!) the other day and in my feed, I saw a recipe for these cookies. After reading the ingredients and reviews, I knew I had to make them. Because, coconut. My boys and husband are huge fans of pretty much anything coconut, which kinda makes me laugh because as a kid I thought the white flaky stuff was the worst thing to add to baked goods. Now that I’m older and wiser 😉 I know better and love the stuff too. I knew these cookies would be a hit in my house.
I like that these cookies are filling. They have extras in them like the coconut but also have oatmeal too. Adding oatmeal to a cookie is pretty much making it a plausible excuse to eat cookies for breakfast, in my book anyway. 🙂 It just makes it more filling and substantial.
I also used a combination of both semi-sweet and milk chocolates. The mix is a good one–kinda like Mounds and Almond Joy–they’re both great paired with coconut, right? I did use unsweetened coconut just because I thought there’d be enough sweetness with all that brown sugar. So that coconut flavor shines without being overly sweet.
Chewy, full of flavor and texture, these cookies are sure to satisfy any coconut-lovin’ craving you have. Try making them today!
