Today I’m sharing one of my favorite chocolate chip cookies. These Oatmeal Cranberry Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies are so delicious! They are the perfect consistency of chewy and soft. Yum!
Chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favorite dessert. Honestly, it’s so bad that I have collected multiple different recipes for chocolate chip cookies from friends and family over the years and they are in my beloved family cookbook.
But back to this recipe…
These cookies contain oatmeal which makes them even more moist and chewy. The coconut adds a nice chew as well. And the dried cranberries bring a little tart too. You can omit the coconut or cranberries if you prefer.
You can let your imagination run with these cookies. I recommend you do not exceed 2 1/2 cups of add-ins (including chocolate chips) per batch. Note: Add-In ideas are annotated on the recipe and can be omitted or adjusted
- sliced almonds
- white chocolate chips
- pretzels, chopped
I’m sure there are more ideas, but these are the ones that we enjoy.
Now let’s get to baking some cookies!
