Chewy Coconut Cookies #recipe

I’m a cookie brat. I’m particular about the flavors and types of cookies I eat. I don’t eat packaged cookies except for the occasional Oreo or Samoa. I prefer my cookies fresh, made from scratch and warm. This means homemade cookies often get eaten before they’re even cooled. These Chewy Coconut Cookies are especially good when warm out of the oven.chewy coconut cookies #recipe

I’m really the only one in the house the loves these cookies so that just means more for me.  I realize that’s a curse I bring onto myself but I’m willing to sacrifice for these sweet chewy treats.


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked or shredded coconutchewy coconut cookies #recipe



Start by preheating your oven to 350º.

In a large mixing bowl add butter and sugars. Combine till smooth.

Then add egg and vanilla and mix till fluffy.

Gradually add flour/baking powder/baking soda/salt mixture and coconut.

Chill batter for 30 minutes.

Drop even rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet 2″ apart.

Bake for 9-12 minutes till edges are browned. Cool on wire racks.

Cookie should be crisp on edges and underside but chewy in the middle. Store in container with tight-fitting lid. Makes 30 cookies.chewy coconut cookies #recipe

This cookie is for the coconut lover. Upping the coconut flavor is simple with the addition of coconut extract and more flaked coconut. You’ll end up with something that resembles a macaroon but that’s not a bad thing.

    I just made a very similar batch last night all ingredients the same except 1 cup coconut, 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, and 6oz of choc chips! they’re my kids favorite!

  2. I usually don’t even like coconut – but these sound and look delicious!

  3. I love that these are chewy! Most coconut cookies I have had are hard – I prefer chewy cookies!

    Did you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut. Thank you.

    • i believe I used sweetened because that’s all i can ever find in my store. Unsweetened would probably work too as there are sweet cookies.

  10. We are snowed in today and I am craving a sweet treat. I already have everything for your recipe on hand so I am planning to make these cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

  11. These cookies are delicious! I will make them again.

    Made these today and they are so good! Thank you for the recipe. We put our shredded coconut in the blender to make it fine. My dough was not as runny as yours, and my cookies didn’t flatten. They stayed puffy, but they were amazing! 🙂

    These are some of the best cookies I’ve ever eaten. They were so easy to make too. Thanks for the awesome post! I added about a teaspoon of coconut oil to mine and they were all gooey on the inside. So perfect. Keep posting!!
