Coconut, Chocolate Chunk, and Walnut Cookies

The kids had their last swimming lesson for the summer recently and we decided to bake some cookies as a thank you to their beloved swimming instructor. We found out she LOVES walnuts and coconut as well as being a big fan of chocolate so we combined all of those ingredients together and made her a big batch of cookies. We used chocolate chunks instead of chips to make them extra decadent and delicious. Thankfully, the cookies were a big hit and proved to be as delicious as we hoped.

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups of flaked coconut
  • 1 cup walnut pieces

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheets with a silpat mat or cooking spray.

Using a beater, mix the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and eggs until creamy and smooth.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together thoroughly. Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture until well blended. Add the chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts then mix. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minuets or until golden brown. Allow to cool before moving them to a wire wrack. Enjoy.

    I made this recipe today but had to add another half-stick if butter because the ingredients wouldn’t stick together with one stick. They same out good.
