Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

Chocolate Chip Coconut CookiesBy March my patience and tolerance has always run short and these Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies are a way to shove warm weather into life because somehow it’s been the longest and most obnoxiously unending winter. How are you finding things friends? How are you finding ways to bring warmth to your days?

My tolerance this year wore out around the end of February likely due to the fact we’ve been stuck indoors for longer than we find comfortable, but maybe it’s also because as I type this we’re facing another cold snap…like c’mon!!! Just give us months of warmth…we’ve earned it!! Patience aside, it’s been the longest March for any of us…and the cold just reminds me it’s not yet even close to being over.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

Something about earning something makes it better, a fact a dear friend of mine has noted after spending a year of her life living out of bags after a move overseas was snatched away thanks to the pandemic. She has made it to that foreign land and somehow things are falling into place and now she’s said it’s so great because it means so much more than if it had all gone to plan last March.

When we lived in the same land we would frequently catch up over brunch and often would enjoy a baked treat thereafter so these chocolate chip coconut cookies are a way to celebrate her accomplishments. Friends, likewise I’m hoping things fall into place and we get to enjoy some months of warm weather whilst being outside and most importantly, recognizing just how lucky we are!

How to prepare Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

  • Prepare the oven and tray: Line your baking tray and heat that oven up.
  • Cream it up: Cream the butter and sugar.
  • Add an egg: Add your egg and combine.
  • Coconuts: The desiccated coconut and coconut milk are added to form a beautiful smooth batter.
  • Dry it up: Add the dry ingredients and combine until the flour is just mixed in.
  • Chocolate chunks: Throw your chocolate chunks into the mix and stir together with a spatula.
  • Scoop: Take scoopfuls of the cookie dough and place on your baking tray.
  • Bake: Bake until golden and then allow to sit on your tray to ’set’ for 2 minutes.
  • Serve: Once cooled, enjoy these cookies accompanied by your favorite hot drink or cold glass of milk.

Tips for the best Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

Visible chunks of chocolate: Keep large chunks of your chocolate aside and poke into the unbaked dough before putting into the oven and this will give you those perfect chocolate pieces.

Cookies right out of the oven: The cookies are still slightly soft in the center when you first remove them from the oven, therefore, the added step of letting them sit on the hot tray for a further 2 minutes where you will then be able to slide them off with a spatula.
