Chocolate Oatmeal Coconut Cookies | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Photo updated October 2012

First of all, I want to thank everyone for their well-wishes for my husband. Things didn’t happen quite as we expected – the doctor got into his knee and found that there was too much damage to continue the surgery. He ended up scoping the knee, and so now it looks like my husband will need a full knee replacement sooner than expected.

I was looking through the photos I have not blogged about, and came across these cookies that I made about a month ago. I came across this recipe on This Week For Dinner. These cookies contain everything I love in a cookie – chocolate, coconut, oatmeal – I knew that these would go over well at our house!! I made them, and of course we loved them. Again, I only had quick cooking oats, but I would recommend making these with old-fashioned oats. It also called for mini chocolate chips, and I used regular chocolate chips because that is what I had. These are BIG cookies – and while you could always make them smaller, every once in awhile you need to treat yourself to a BIG cookie!!

Chocolate Oatmeal Coconut Cookies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
More than your typical chocolate chip cookie - these cookies are full of oats, coconut and chocolate!
Serves: about 20 cookies
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2¼ cups oats
  • 1½ cups coconut
  • 12 oz semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (2 cups)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a mixer, beat together the butter and the sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla, salt, and baking soda. Add in the flour and beat just until combined. Add in the oats, coconut and chocolate chips. Beat until combined.
  3. Place ¼-cup scoops of the dough on a greased cookie sheet, at least 3 inches apart. Pat down to circles ½-inch high.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, rotating cookie sheet halfway through the baking time. Cool on cooling racks.

    I have a recipe for cookies like this that I absolutely adore, both because the cookies taste great and because it was the first recipe I ever wrote. You’re right, chocolate & coconut are a mighty tasty combo! Your cookies look delicious.

    Commiserations to you husband on his knee troubles. I hope it all works out. your biscuits sound delicious. What a great combination of flavours.

  24. Amanda at Little Foodies says:

    I’m both relieved and sad that I didn’t read your earlier post pre-surgery but so sorry to hear that Deborah. My heart really goes out to him. They seem to have that magical figure of 5 years as that’s what they said about my back originally last year. Bit scared to go for the operation option!
    Sincere best wishes to you both. Tough one! Lots of TLC needed for him but for you too! Look after yourselves.

    Don’t worry, since major sports people have knee injuries a lot, there’s been a lot of advancements in knee repair/ replacements. It’s going to be okay.
