Sometime I’d  like to try them with white chocolate chips (instead of dark) and macadamia nuts (instead of almonds). They are perfect as they are but it’s always nice to have a few options, right? With a combination like this, who could resist them? They are a cookie made to please a crowd.

Oatmeal Coconut Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yield: About 34 medium cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes


  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1 1/4 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp coconut extract (or 1/2 tsp for more coconut flavor)
  • 3 cups rolled oats (old fashioned)
  • 12 oz dark chocolate , chopped into small chunks
  • 1 1/3 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 cup unsalted almonds , chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds, set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until well blended (not pale and fluffy, just until creamy). Mix in eggs one at a time. Stir in milk, vanilla and coconut extract. Blend in dry ingredients then blend in oats. Mix in chocolate chunks, coconut and almonds (chocolate dust from chopping included, don't waste chocolate. Also, if you want some chocolate chunks to show through, set aside about 1/4 of them to press into tops of cookies after shaping into balls). Shape dough into medium size balls (I did 50 grams each or a little over 3 Tbsp) and transfer to parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheets, spacing each 2-inches apart. Bake in preheated oven 11 - 13 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet several minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

  • Martha in KS: This is similar to a recipe for Chocolate Chippers in the 1984 cookbook “Paul Prudhomme’s Louisiana Kitchen.” I adapted it substituting raisins for dates & oatmeal for granola & sold them in my deil as Chippachunks in the 80’s.
