How to make Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make these cookies you will need to gather the following ingredients:

  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Salt
  • Vanilla
  • Eggs
  • Baking Soda
  • Flour
  • Unsweetened Coconut
  • Sweetened Coconut
  • Chocolate Chips

I know… you’re wondering why two kinds of coconut? If you use too much of one and not the other the cookies will be too sweet or not sweet enough. Also, both types offer a slightly different texture which makes these cookies perfect.

Now, to start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Next, add salt, vanilla and eggs and mix until combined. Then, add flour, baking soda, unsweetened coconut, sweetened coconut and chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Drop dough onto a baking sheet in tablespoon size balls. If you have been following me for a while you know I love to use a scoop to make sure my cookies are uniform size. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until lightly golden.

Let cookies set on baking sheet for 2 minutes and then move to a cooling rack. Once cookies are completely cool store in an airtight container at room temperature.
