Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies – Barefeet in the Kitchen


These coconut chocolate chip cookies are loaded with both white and dark chocolate, in addition to a good amount of coconut. They are delicious warm from the oven and every bit as fantastic two days later.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

These are chewy cookies with crunchy edges, filled to the max with almost all of my favorite cookie flavors. I’ve made them three times in the past month! It clearly takes very little excuse for me to stir together a batch of these cookies.

There’s a little bit of oatmeal tucked inside as well, adding to that terrific texture and chewiness.

White and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you don’t happen to be a fan of white chocolate, feel free to replace it with semi-sweet, milk, or dark chocolate. While I am very rarely a fan of white chocolate myself, I do enjoy it in these cookies.

The white chocolate chips add creamy sweetness, while the darker chocolate chips contribute rich, bitter notes. Their contrasting flavors create a great balance in these cookies.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate and coconut is such a great pairing. I never can resist combining the two ingredients in recipes. These cookies were inspired by these Dark Chocolate Coconut Blondies.

Almond Joy Brownies are gooey fudgy brownies filled with plenty of chocolate, almonds, and coconut. I have a weakness for just about any almond and chocolate combination. So, when I combined that with my fondness for coconut, the result was a rich chocolate, almond, and coconut brownie that is completely and totally me.

Toasted coconut, toffee bits, and chocolate chips create an outstanding cookie with an unexpected crisp toffee surprise on the bottom of each of these cookies. The cookies are extra chewy from the combination of coconut and toffee bits.

Chocolate and toasted coconut stuffed inside chewy blondies? Yes, please! These coconut cookie bars just plain make me happy.

No-bake cookies have met their match with these no bake chocolate peanut butter bars with oatmeal and coconut. It doesn’t get much easier than just stirring everything together and pouring it into a pan.

The chewiness of pudding cookies and the decadence of toffee and chocolate create a decadent treat in these Toffee Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is an easy cookie recipe that’s perfect with each and every bite.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Fudge is filled with sweet, chewy bits of coconut and then topped with a generous sprinkling of coconut.

Rich, chocolatey, and nutty with plenty of light, flaky coconut, homemade Almond Joys are easier to make than you’d expect.
