These cookies are soft and chewy and didn't last a day after making them! Once I thought I HATED coconut, but these made me realize I just didn't like overly sweet coconut. These are fabulous! Made with whole wheat flour and oatmeal, it's a better alternative to the traditional cookie.

Thank you for submitting this recipe. This was the first time I tried a recipe that had not been rated and I sure am glad I did. These cookies are soft, chewy and so, so delicious. If you love the combination of coconut and dark chocolate you should make a batch of these, stat! I followed the recipe as written except I added the yogurt to the wet ingredients, instead of at the end, and I used quick cook oats. You may be tempted to add more chocolate chips but don't, otherwise you will end up with too many mix-ins and not enough dough to hold the cookies together. These are a decadent treat. Read More

Looved these cookies! Mine went flat though so that's why they got a 4/5. I used real butter (maybe that's my problem?) and only 1/2 cup of choc chips and no nuts. I'll be making hem again soon! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

Added this to my list of Christmas cookies this year just to try something new...and it was the favorite of many people! The mingled flavors of coconut and chocolate are excellent (I used sweetened coconut flakes and semi-sweet chips because it's what I had in the pantry) and the chunky texture given by the oatmeal makes for a hearty dense chewy cookie. I gave it four stars only because they were a little dry (but I used butter not margarine)- but went down great with a glass of cold milk! Will definitely be making these again and again. I think next time I may add some almond pieces...mmmm.... Read More

Thanks for a wonderful healthier ch chip coconut cookie! These were pretty decadent for me but I'm diabetic and don't do much real sugar baking. I made these changes; subbed some applesauce for some of the fat used butter because that's what I had added 1/2 tsp baking powder so they would be a little lighter higher used 1/2 cup Stevia in place of some of the sugar used 2 cups ch chips and 1 cup coconut. These were great looking and tasting kind of rustic and moist and chewy. Great flavor! Will be making again! Read More

I made these last night and the entire household could not stop eating them. As many other reviewers I used butter instead of spread. They did turn out an unusual texture as they didn't stay together and kind of crumbled up as you picked them up. Nobody cared about the texture though (they were so good that I think they'd have sucked them through a straw if they had to! haha). They were not dry at all they were chewy and very buttery tasting. I used Ghirardelli bittersweet chips which worked perfect. They almost taste like toffee somehow. I usually like cookies undercooked and gooey but these are better a bit crispy as they did flatten for me and almost reminded me of a chewy version of a "Lacey" cookie. Mmm definitely a keeper in this house! Read More
