Definitely a classic when it comes to cookie varieties, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are total comfort baking! My take on this favourite cookie has shredded coconut in addition to the oats and chocolate chips.

electric handheld mixer
measuring cups & spoons
½cupsalted butter, softened
½cupdark brown sugar, packed
¼cupgranulated white sugar
½cupunsweetened shredded coconut*
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾cupsemisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350℉. Line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper or silicone baking mats or spray with nonstick spray.
Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white with an electric handheld mixer on high speed for 30 seconds. Add the egg, vanilla, and salt and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Add the oatmeal, coconut, flour, and baking soda and mix on low speed until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop using a medium cookie scoop or teaspoon onto the prepared baking sheets, 12 cookies per pan. Bake cookies one pan at a time in the preheated oven for 8-11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and just slightly soft looking on top. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling while you bake the remaining pans of cookies. Enjoy!
*If you do not have shredded coconut or do not like it, you may completely omit it and use an extra ½ cup of oats in its place.Store cookies covered at room temperature for up to 1 week.
