These Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are crispy on the edges, but chewy in the middle. The oats and toasted coconut add a yummy crunch!
Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, so it’s only natural that I’d be sharing a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. It’s well documented that I have a love for homemade chocolate chip cookies. I’ve shared over a dozen chocolate chip cookie recipes! Do you have a favorite?
I haven’t been baking with coconut oil for very long, but I am really loving it! It is great for cookies, and gives them a perfect texture. And of course I love coconut, so I love the subtle flavor. But for these cookies, I wanted a real coconut boost, so I also added coconut extract and toasted coconut to the dough. Mmmmm. So good!
Toasting the coconut really adds to the flavor of these cookies, so I highly recommend it. I like to toast my coconut in a 400 degree oven for 6-8 minutes, stirring often. You can also toast it in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. I always make extra because I like to snack on it. So yummy!
