Not sure why the coconut and oatmeal combination is so good, but it is!! I sometimes throw in a teaspoon of almond extract too just for a little something more and they always turn out so good. :)

Soft and Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Oh yummy!!

Let me know if you decide to try these out. Although there is a cup of coconut, it’s not super coconut-y. And they always turn out so soft!! Also, ever oven is so different but it just depends on yours and where you live but sometimes they bake in 7 and sometimes 10 which is a huge difference, so you may just need to keep an eye on them until they are very slightly browned. :)

    Did I miss the recipe? I didn’t see it here. Thanks.

    I’d love to try these! I am new to your site, and was wondering where you are…. because I’ve tried some recipes from people baking at dea level just just haven’t worked out at my high altitude location. I wanted to check before I try!

  3. 4

    Mmmm! These sound delicious! My husband doesn’t like coconut so maybe he’ll let me have them to myself!

    This is a thousand dollar recipe, I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile!

    These look delicious and would love to try. Did you simply add one cup coconut to your oatmeal cookie recipe? I’m thinking some chocolate chips would be a nice addition as well!

    Where’s the recipe?

  7. 8

    I don’t see the recipe on this page. I checked your other recipes and the actual recipe step do appear for other recipes, but not for this Coconut Oatmeal recipe. Can you email me the recipe please.

  8. 10

    I also can’t find the recipe. Wish I could…

    • 11

      It’s up now. :)

      • 12

        At least you know we are looking at the site…and waiting to use your ideas… I will be making these Sunday morning For the sake of mentioning it, a bakery here makes an oatmeal cookie I love….has oatmeal, raises, and peanuts, and I always thought adding coconut would be great. Y’all might try those additions as well.

  9. 13

    These look great and I would love to make them, but where’s the recipe?

  10. 15

    OK! I’m on my THIRD cookie! I live in Miami, Florida and Hurricane Issac is on his way… to keep myself from becoming a nervous wreck, I’m testing recipes for my son’s 1st birthday. I have the last tray in the oven as I type this, lol! They are freak’n DELICIOUS! I even added in 1/2 a bag of white chocolate chips! YUM to the yum, yum, yum! Thank you for posting these delectable goodies, I will certainly be making these for his birthday in the fall :)

  11. 16

    What type of oatmeal did you use—regular, five minute or quick (one minute)?

    Jessica Cooley :

    Hey girl, so I made these yesterday…super good, but didn’t turn out quite right texture wise. The batter seemed dry (I only did 2 c flour). They were perfect fresh out f the oven, but were hard the next day. What’s my deal?

    • 18

      I just made these tonight and thought the texture was dry also – my cookie didn’t look as pretty as your picture – It really looks dry. But – they do taste great. I am just hoping they won’t be hard in the morning like yours were Jessica.

    These Coconut Oatmeal Cookies look yummy. I can’t wait to make some. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I looooove oatmeal cookies. So need to try these, SOON! Thanks for posting the recipe. Your cookies look like they are perfectly baked. They have that awesome chewy-soft look, like if you hold it in your fingers too long the cookie will slooooowly bend…

    Made these cookies today for a BBQ. I used Regular oats (not instants/quick cooking). They tasted great and were a hit. However, mine were a bit crispy on the outside, to ensure they were cooked in middle. I was almost tempted to turn the temperature down to 350. I will try a sheet of them at the lower temperature next time I make them. Mine were not dry. I used 2 cups of flour. Thanks for the recipe.

  18. 24

    HELP! I was just wondering what kind of coconut to use!? Sweetened or Unsweetened? Thanks :-)

    • 25

      Hi Natalie!! Now that you ask, I have no idea. I don’t have any on hand but I’ve always just bought the shredded coconut in a bag and didn’t even realize there was sweetened or unsweetened, but if I had to guess I would say sweetened. Sorry I’m not more help. :/

      • 26

        I made this after my daughter-in-law sent me this recipe and it was great. Made it exactly like the recipe and it made about three dozen cookies . I used sweetened coconut and the overall sweetness seemed perfect.

  19. 27

    Do I use salted or unsalted butter?!!!

    • 28

      Hi there, I know this is a year after you posted that comment but I hope this helps.;-) when I use salted butter I usually leave out the salt in th recipe. So use whatever’s on hand I guess.:) I’m gonna try this things…we are coconut FREAKS:)

  20. 29

    Just made these Coconut Oatmeal Cookies tonight for my family! They absolutely loved them and is their new favorite cookie! Which is saying a lot because my mom makes homemade cookies all the time to ship off to my brothers at college, for every holiday. Absolutely delishhh! they actually tasted better cooked than the dough surprisingly. Were very soft, moist, and fluffy. YUM YUM YUM. <3

  21. 30

    Baked these today, came out delicious. Only used 2 and 1/3 cups of flour and added a little more coconut.
    Going to add chocolate chips in the last few batches. Pair great with a white wine. :)

  22. 32

    Just wondering if any one has tried to freeze these would love to make a bunch in advance for a holiday party ..thanks

  23. 33

    These cookies were amazing. I added mini chocolate chips… they tasted great,but they didn’t look very pretty.

  24. 34

    How much flour for the oatmeal coconut cookies? Is it two and a half cups or is it 5 cups?

  25. 35

    OMG. just made these for a get together at my house tonight.. Don’t think they will last. I threw in some white chocolate chips to spice them up and they are to die for. And really friggen easy. <3 it!

  26. 36

    These cookies are great as is our as base. We have made them exact to recipe and have added chopped pecans, or dried cranberries or chocolate chips even a couple combinations. They are great.

  27. 37

    I LOVE the coconut oatmeal cookie recipe! I’m certain I’ve made them more than 10 times now. My husband and I are starting to work on less processed food in our diet, so recently I replaced the normal grocery store sweetened coconut with unsweetened coconut. I had been told that it was not good to bake with, but I wanted to test it anyways. It works perfectly! I really love the nice big flakes of coconut, and the fact that it’s a “tad” healthier for us..LOL..still a cookie, but I love to bake, so I have to figure out ways to still bake and be healthy-ish ;). If you are interested in trying it out just stick to the 2 cups of flour, the additional 1/2 cup isn’t necessary because unsweetened coconut is dry. We also started adding a cup of dark chocolate chips and it’s really great! Thanks for such a yummy recipe, it’s become part of my cookie arsenal. :)

    By far the best cookies ever!!!! I got tons of raves about them when I made them from multiple functions. My husband doesn’t like coconut but these are now his favorite cookies! I under bake them so they are nice and chewy! Saw a tip once to put sugar on the tops before baking and it’s just a little added baked goodness!

    • 40

      Oh, I just love to get comments like these!! SO glad you guys like them. Not sure if I mentioned it in the post but I don’t like coconut either, and these are one of my favorites! I will definitely be sure to sprinkle sugar on top next time I make them – great tip. Thank you for stopping by! XO

  29. 41

    I love these cookies. I made them today and my boyfriend thought they were the best he had ever eaten. I added cinnamon to the recipe. I will be making these again.:)

  30. 43

    I found this recipe through pinterest, and I just made them, and I love them! They are delicious!
    I made one substitutions though – I like to bake with coconut oil, so i used that instead of butter – which just adds a tiny bit extra coconut flavour, but I like baking with it! I only found they were a bit dry before I once I combined the ingredients, so i added some water (just eyeballed it), until it was a desirable texture, that made them need to cook a bit longer (I cooked them for 13 minutes).
    End result: Delicious cookies! Thank you for the recipe! I will for sure make these again!!

  31. 45

    I love, love, love coconut oatmeal cookies! I make mine with cold pressed virgin coconut oil instead of butter to give that extra coconut flavor.
