  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick oats or regular rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup melted and cooled virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar (light also works)
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 (3.5oz) 70% dark chocolate bar, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In large bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, mix together melted coconut oil and brown sugar until smooth. Add in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla; mix again until smooth and well combined.

  4. Add in flour and oat mixture to the wet ingredients; mixing until well combined. Fold in shredded coconut and chocolate chunks. Let dough sit for 5 minutes before baking.

  5. Drop dough with cookie scoop or by large rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes or until edges just begin to turn a golden brown. Do not over bake; we don't want crispy cookies! Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Makes about 20 cookies.

Recipe Notes

*If you want these to be slightly thicker cookies, increase flour to 1 1/4 cup.

I think 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans would be FANTASTIC in these cookies. Let me know if you give it a try.

To make these cookies gluten free: I suggest using a GF all purpose 1:1 baking flour.
