I absolutely love baking with coconut. Whether that be with coconut oil or desiccated coconut, it can take any recipe to a whole new level. And that is exactly what it has done in today’s recipe.

Today, I bring you these incredibly thick and delicious Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are so full of flavour with amazing texture, and are the most perfect cookies for all you coconut lovers!

Ingredients for Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • cornflour/cornstarch
  • salt
  • unsalted butter
  • light brown sugar
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • large egg
  • vanilla extract
  • desiccated coconut
  • chocolate chips

This recipe calls for two whole cups of desiccated coconut. This results in thick, chewy, flavourful cookies that have a wonderful texture. You’re gonna LOVE them!

To make these chocolate chip coconut cookies, simply whisk together the dry ingredients in one bowl, then whisk together the butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla in another bowl. Fold in the dry ingredients, then fold in the coconut and chocolate chips.

Scoop up the dough into balls, and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Though eating a cookie warm from the oven is a must! 🙂

    My dough turned out very dry and at the end mostly fell apart, should there perhaps be a bit more butter? Had to add at little milk for the last 4 to stay together. The cookies also did not flatten at all, so basically ended up with cookie balls that I flattened when they came out of the oven. They were tasty enough, but certainly not pretty.

      I’m sorry to hear, Mimi! There are many reasons cookie dough may seem too dry, and without being there, I can’t really say what went wrong for you.

      Too much flour can cause dry, crumbly cookie dough, and cookies won’t spread in the oven. I always recommend weighing your flour out instead of using measuring cups. Same for the desiccated coconut – you don’t want to be using too much coconut.

      If you are using the correct amount of ingredients, try using less flour next time. Even where you live, and temperatures can affect baking!
