How to make Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Take my classic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and add coconut!
Make your cookie dough and then chill in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.
Scoop out the cookie dough balls and space them out evenly on the baking sheet. Bake and enjoy!
- Unsalted Butter
- Sugar and Brown Sugar
- Baking Soda and Baking Powder
- Chocolate Chips
- Sweetend Coconut Flakes
Step One - Cream together butter and sugar.
Step One continued - Once creamed together add your vanilla and eggs.
Step Two - In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly mix and add this to the creamed butter and sugar. Mix until well combined.
Step Three - Fold in chocolate chips and ½ cup coconut flakes. Allow chilling for 1-2 hours in the fridge.
- Cooking Tip: Chilling the dough allows the fats and oils to reharden so the cookie does not spread out too much during baking.
Step Four - Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a cooking sheet of parchment paper or non-stick cooking spray.
Step Five - Spoon and roll out unto a prepared cookie sheet. Top the cookies with the remaining coconut flakes. Allow to cook for 7-8 minutes.
Step Five continued - Remove and leave on the pan to cook for 2-3 more minutes. Remove and allow to cool on a rack. ENJOY!
Tips and FAQ:
Don't Over-Bake: It's important to not overbake your cookies. When you remove your cookie, they might not look done but they will continue to cook on the pan.
Don't Over-Mix: Over mix your cookies they could come out of the oven flat. Make sure to mix until just combined.
Freezing Cookie Dough: I love making extra cookie dough to freeze for later. All you need to do is roll them into balls and then freeze them.
Place them on a sheet pan and into the freezer. This way they all freeze individually without getting stuck together.
Once they are frozen you can place them all in a large freezer bag together.
Baking Frozen Cookie Dough: Start by removing the cookie dough from your freezer.
Take out the cookie dough balls from the baggy and place them on a baking dish to thaw.
Once the cookie dough is back to room temperature you can bake them according to the directions.
