Oatmeal Coconut Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies

May 17, 2014

Oh my, is this a cookie you need to try! These decadent cookies are like getting four different kinds of cookies all in one. They aren’t just your everyday chocolate chip cookie, these things have oatmeal, coconut, almonds and chocolate chunks.

And those ingredients not only make these deliciously flavorful and completely irresistible, but they give these cookies such an amazing texture. Trust me, you’re cookie recipe book definitely needs this one added.

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.

Enjoy!

You'll love all the goodness in these cookies! They're chewy, chocolatey and filled with coconut and almond flavor.

Servings: 34 cookies
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

    These are the BEST cookies I’ve ever made! And I’ve been baking cookies for 40 years. They go together pretty quick and easy. The texture is just perfect, a bit crispy on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside. I am trying to keep my had out of the cookie jar. I just can’t!! Thank your for sharing this adapted recipe. My life is forever changed : )

    Hey Jaclyn, I only just made a batch of your cookies and I’m in love. It’s safe to say this is my new favourite oatmeal cookie recipe. We don’t have coconut essence in Germany, so I skipped that part, but they are still delicious. The coconut goes amazingly with the oats and the chocolate and almond round it all up nicely.
    I baked these as a part of a birthday gift for my friends. I was a little worried about it, since this was my first time making this recipe, but after tasting these, I am more than happy to say I’ll hold up my good reputation as the “cookie fairy”.
    Thank you!
