White Chocolate and Coconut Cookies

If you are a lover of white chocolate and coconut, this will become your favorite treat. You can lengthen the cooking time by 2 or 3 minutes if you prefer a firmer cookie. For a super-moist biscuit, bake for 10 minutes, let it cool on a rack for 10 minutes, and enjoy!

White Chocolate and Coconut Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 36 cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 2 cups white chocolate of good quality cut into large pieces
  • 1 cup grated coconut sweet


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Put the butter, sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is creamy—about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add the vanilla. Mix.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add this mixture to the butter mixture a little at a time. Add the oatmeal, chocolate, and coconut
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the mixture by tablespoon on the plates, leaving a 2 inch space between each cookie.
  • Bake 15 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned. Cool on the sheets for 2 minutes, then remove and place on a rack; let cool completely.

    Really easy to follow the instructions. And the result was really really yummy! Except, I googled and converted everything into grams and found that 340 g of white choc was too much. Ended up using only half. But still amazing. Thank you very much for sharing your recipe!

    These cookies are TOO good. Recently started baking as a hobby and have made these cookies probably 10x more than any other–have had to make extra for work and family once they tried them and had several people ask for whole batches! I did alter it just a bit, though. We love coconut, so we added 2-3 cups of coconut shreds, just a bit more vanilla, and rolled the tops into crushed WALNUTS (the walnuts MADE them and now I couldn’t have them without!). Thanks so much for sharing!
