The great thing about this recipe is that the coconut taste is very subtle and does not overwhelm the buttery, chocolaty flavor. The coconut is toasted first, which helps bring out the “nuttiness” of the coconut as well as keep it from overpowering the rest of the ingredients in the recipe. The coconut also makes the cookies chewier than the typical chocolate chip cookie.
This coconut chocolate chip cookies recipe is simple to make. The only even slightly tricky part is toasting the coconut just right so that it doesn’t get too brown.
