Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies are fantastic. I’m always interested in trying new recipes–especially when it comes to cookies! This delightful cookie has two of my favorite items: coconut AND chocolate chips. Yay! And, together, they are out of this world!
This cookie uses coconut extract which increases the amazing coconut flavor in the recipe. This super easy cookie can be whipped up in about 10-15 minutes, baked in about 15 minutes and you have cookies ready to serve your children for after school snacks in about 30 minutes! These cookies travel well so they are great for picnics, potlucks, or to take along with you to munch on during soccer or T-ball practice.
The original recipe is from the Taste of Home Ultimate Cookie Collection Cookbook. The first time I made this recipe I used a chocolate/vanilla swirl chip in the batter. Those were delicious, too.
In this remake of a family favorite I’ve just used chocolate chips. Kroger makes semi-sweet chocolate drops that are larger than Nestle’s or Hershey’s and I like them a lot better, so those are the kind of chocolate chips I used in this cookie dough batter.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy cookie recipe to make, but you’re tired of the typical chocolate chip cookies, then please consider giving these Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies a spin. You won’t be disappointed. They taste wonderful!
I originally posted this in June 2012 as the very first recipe on this blog. I remade this recipe in November 2013. And now, in April 2018 I’ve remade the recipe again. The main thing I wanted to change was to add additional chocolate chips. I used a whole bag including pressing more chocolate chips into the top of the cookie. It makes the cookie richer, more decadent and more heavenly than before.
I made the cookies for a dessert for our Youth Minister and his wife who recently gave birth to their fourth child. Along with Amish Chicken and Noodles, Fried Green Beans, Favorite Fruit Salad and a loaf of Oatmeal Nut Bread, I served these cookies for dessert. Everything was drooled over and you’ll see why after you give them a try.

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Soften butter. Add sugar.
Cream with an electric mixer until creamy.
Add egg, coconut extract, salt and baking soda.
Mix with an electric mixer until combined.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add coconut and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll dough into balls and place on sprayed cookie sheets. Press additional chocolate chips into the tops of each cookie.
Bake 14-16 minutes at 375. My cookies took 16 minutes to bake. These cookies hold their shape well. I’ve increased the flour so they don’t flatten out over the pan.
Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies are so quick and easy to make.
I’m ready to sit down and eat a stack of these great cookies right now!
