Sometimes cookies are dainty, and sometimes they are thick, hearty, and filling – much like these Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Cookies! Trust me, you only need one of these to satisfy your cookie craving!
- ¾ cup coconut oil, room temperature
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 cups quick oats
- 1 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil and both sugars until a creamy.
Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Incorporate into the sugar mixture.
Add the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon; mix well.
Add in the oats, coconut, and chocolate chips; fold into the mixture.
Using a two-tablespoon sized cookie/ice cream scoop, drop the batter on a lined cookie sheet leaving space for expansion while baking. (I placed four rows of three on a large baking sheet.)
Once the dough is in place, slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. At this point, you can add 4 or 5 extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie before baking. This is completely optional.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for two minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
