Double Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Double Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies / Patty's FoodDouble Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies…coming right up…I have a batch in my oven right now as we speak- I don’t know what got into me this past month but I have baked  variations of these cookies at least half a dozen times.  I keep baking, tweaking the recipe and sharing these cookies.  Everybody loves them and asks for the recipe so here it is coming right up in my blog post.

I don’t know, am I the only one with this repeater recipe cookie baking thing?  I think there is something cozy and comfortable about baking a familiar batch of cookies with maybe a slight tweak or twist to them.  How much oatmeal, chocolate chips or coconut is the right amount??  How about the sugars or the flours??  For sure it needs a little salt..and here comes another batch out of the oven.

I also wanted to seize the opportunity to share a photo of a vintage apron from my now boxed up in the garage poodle collection, that’s what happens to bad little collections when they get out of control-they get boxed up and put away, except for this cool little apron, I don’t know it might be from the fifties?  That would be 1950′s making my apron over 50 years old, I would never give away it’s exact age-now that wouldn’t be very nice, would it?

Do I ever wear this vintage poodle apron when I’m baking?  No, but it might be just the thing for  entertaining – a theme cocktail in one hand and a rented poodle in the other when greeting guests at the door.  I’ll get right on that.

Double Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies / Patty's FoodDouble Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies / Patty's FoodI’m joining Roxana’s Chocolate Party this month, a little bit late but better late than never!  Since I’ve been baking multiple batches of my delicious coconut-y and chocolate-y oatmeal drop cookies over the past month I decided that there is no better time than the present to share this recipe on my blog with the Chocolate Party since the theme ingredient for the month of April is coconut and at the moment I am all about chocolate coconut cookies.

  1. Those look delicious! And I love the poodle apron. My mother has some cool aprons that belonged to her mother, so they must be nearing the century mark!

  2. Love these oatmeal cookies, Patty. They look so beautiful and packed with goodness. Lovely apron!

  3. Oh boy Patty – these look dangerously GREAT! I adore coconut and with chocolate – now that is a perfect pairing. Love your poodle skirt. I think we have our next blogger get together – you should break out that apron! Hope you are doing well! :-)

  4. Hey Patty! These cookies look great and I like that you have given them away and everyone loves them, means they are a must try for sure. Hope you are doing well. Life got a little crazy here but is getting back to normal. Have a great week.

  5. Patty,
    I love coconut and chocolate, and will be making these cookies soon. I have a Cockapoo. that a Diva:). I would absolutely wear the apron. If your apron needs a new home, I’ll take it, he he.

  6. These coconut-oatmeal cookies are lovely, Patty! So perfect for spring and absolutely delicious with a cup of tea, I bet. Beautiful batch of treats!

  7. Such scrumptious cookies! The recipients must be very happy! It’s rare to see a vintage apron in such excellent condition, many are just worn out! I have treasures “stored” in the garage for safekeeping too.
    My problem is that then I forget exactly what’s in the boxes…..LOL

  8. Bring all the coconut! These looks absolutely delicious, and you are not alone in the recipe repeating. Sometimes when you find a favourite you have to make it again and again.
    I love the apron too :) We have some at home that came over to Australia from Denmark with my grandmother and they are embroidered with adorable little sketches. Might have to dig them out again to wear while I bake a batch of these cookies.

  9. I have my hand up, I’m a recipe repeater. A good recipe, is worth making over and over again. I love how the coconut oil works in cookies, so I know these combined with all the other goodies will be good. Wish I had one right now as a matter of fact. After wrestling with that monkey-ranha over the last little bits of monkey bread I’m famished. He he. That apron is too cute and you should wear it. Hope you are doing good.

  10. I tend to use the same cookie recipes that I know my family loves also. I think these could become a favorite of mine too! I love all of the organic ingredients you’ve used.

    Your retro apron is wonderful! It’s in wonderful shape still and I love the color.

  11. Your pictures are just adorable! Also I agree, there’s definitely a lot of comfort in baking a tried-and-true recipe, especially getting to sit back and enjoy it once it’s done.

  12. Love these cookies, I know I’d be unable to resist the chocolate, oatmeal and coconut combination!

  13. Beautiful Patty. I have a similar recipe that is an old family favorite. In fact, as I remember, the original recipe came from a cornflake cereal box back in the 60′s, but I have long since omitted the cornflakes but always use coconut, chocolate chip and oatmeal. But how do you get the cookies to not flatten out on the bottom? They just look so good. As usual, your photography is beautiful and inspiring.

      Thanks Heidi- I put in as much oatmeal into the cookie dough as possible then I roll the dough into balls that I slightly flatten on top – I think that keeps the cookies from spreading out in the oven~Patty

  14. These look so good! I love chocolate and coconut cookies. These will be in Easter care packages next week for sure. I’m a recipe repeater too, but only if it’s something I really love. :)

  15. These look so yummy! May I ask what “baking spice” is? That is entirely new to me.

    • pattysfood says:

      Hi Kori! Baking spice is a mixture of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, cloves etc., it’s used in breads, cakes, cookies and muffins-just to spice things up ;) I use Penzey’s Spices brand of Baking Spice.

  16. One can never have too many cookie recipes. You’re right. There’s always the curiosity “What will happen if I add more oats, little flour, cut the sugar, pack these cookies with chocolate chips” and before you know it a new cookie recipe is being developed.
    These beauties sound so good, no wonder everyone wanted the recipe.
    Thanks for sharing and for participating again in this month chocolate party

  17. Would you please pass that cooling rack of cookies please????? These look really delicious Patty. Always love your photos.

  18. Love love love these, Patty! I just bought my very first jar of coconut oil and am addicted to what the flavor adds to baked treats. These cookies are a must-make! Hope you are doing well. – Lisa
