These Coconut Cookies are a delicious and tasty alternative to the typical cookie recipe. Nothing beats the crunch and sweetness of coconut.

Coconut Cookies

Mmmm. These were a rainy day concoction, because what better weather to make cookies is there, really? Ok, well in Alberta there are snowy days, that definitely counts as a cookie baking day.

How to Make Coconut Cookies

To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of butter
  • ¾ cup of brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 2 ½ cups of flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups of flaked coconut
  • ½ to 1 cup of chocolate chips

Follow these directions once you’ve gathered your ingredients:

  • Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the butter, sugars, eggs and coconut extract together until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the dry ingredients and mix completely.
  • Time for the coconut and then add in the chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes in the 350 degree oven, until they are beautifully browned. These are best slightly underbaked and very chewy.

You can omit the chocolate chips if you want just a pure buttery, coconutty golden cookie goodness. That’s what these are, pure buttery coconut taste. If you don’t like either of those-and if you don’t whassa matter wit you?- then these are not the cookie for you.

How Long Can You Freeze Coconut Cookies?

Coconut cookies can be frozen for quite a long time, simply freeze them individually on a cookie tray first, then remove from the freezer, add the frozen cookies to a ziploc bag (freezer safe is best obviously) and return to the freezer.

    I have so much unsweetened coconut – can I use this (and sugar substitutes for the white and brown sugars?) Might as well ask about using almond flour while I am at it! Nothing like totally reworking the recipe. But maybe?

    Yum, these remind me of Mounds candy bars. It’s like a coconut explosion with just enough chocolate to round things out.
