Oatmeal Coconut Chewies

mix wet ingredients

I toasted my coconut and added it in

*Note: A couple of the times I’ve made these, I have substituted white wheat flour for the all-purpose and they turned out delicious!
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened to cool room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut (I toasted the coconut)
1 cup quick oats
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream together the sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased or lined (silpat or parchment) baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are set but not overly browned (bake a few minutes longer for a crispier version).


  1. these look so good, send me some! Cookies with coconut are the best.

  2. These turned out fabulous! I added 1 cup of finely chopped pecans. They are now my absolute FAVORITE cookie. LOVE the chewiness!
