I love soft, chewy oatmeal cookies. Especially when they are loaded with chocolate.

Cookies are loaded not only with chocolate, but also with coconut and nuts.

I combined my two favorite oatmeal cookie recipes, The Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies in one, and added a handful of crunchy buttery nuts and coconut flakes.

The result is a smooth but abundant cookie that brims with the chewiness and texture of oats, nuts and coconut.

The coconut flavor is very subtle, but if you don't like coconut, I recommend these. If you don't like walnuts, skip them. If you prefer raisins to chocolate, make that simple exchange.

The recipe makes a dozen larger, bakery-style cookies that are very thick. I always chill my cookie dough before baking and recommend it. The cooled dough is less spread out and the cookies are baked thicker.

I like that the recipe only makes a dozen, perfect if you don't need too much of a good thing, but double that if you have a large family, need a cookie swap recipe, or love additional cardio workouts.

Like most of my cookie recipes, the dough can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for days (or in the freezer for months), so you have the option of baking just as many cookies as needed at any given time. .

Hot and fresh cookies cannot beat.

Loaded oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

The cookies are loaded with chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts. They are a smooth but very abundant cookie that overflows with the chewiness and texture of oats, coconut and walnuts. If you don't like coconut, create the linked cookies in the post. If you don't like walnuts, skip them. If you prefer raisins to chocolate, make that simple exchange. The recipe makes a dozen larger, bakery-style cookies, but can easily be duplicated if you need more. The dough can be prepared ahead of time so you have the option of baking just as many cookies as needed at any given time. Hot and fresh cookies cannot be beat.

Ingredients:

1 large egg 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packaged 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 cup old-fashioned whole oatmeal (no instant or quick cook ) 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup sweetened grated coconut 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (walnuts can be substituted; walnuts omitted) 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste 1 cup filled with semi-sweet chocolate chips

Addresses:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer equipped with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl and electric mixer) combine the egg, butter, sugars, vanilla, and whisk on medium-high speed until well combined , approximately 4 minutes.
  2. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the oatmeal, flour, coconut, walnuts, baking soda, salt to taste and beat on low speed until combined, about 1 minute.
  3. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, add the chocolate chips and beat on low speed until combined, about 30 seconds.
  4. Using a large cookie spoon, a 1/4 cup measure, or your hands, form approximately 12 mounds of dough of the same size, roll into balls, and flatten them slightly. Tip: Strategically place a few chocolate chips on top of each mound of dough by taking the shavings from the bottom and adding them on top.
  5. Place the mounds on a large plate or tray, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to 5 days. Do not bake with dough not refrigerated because cookies will bake thinner, flatter, and more likely to spread.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F, line baking sheet with Silpat, or spray with cooking spray. Place dough mounds on a baking sheet at least 2 inches apart (bake 8 cookies per sheet) and bake for about 11 t0 13 minutes (for super soft cookies, more for more well-done cookies), or until the edges are have hardened and the tops are in place, even if they are slightly raw, pale and shiny in the center; do not over bake. The cookies harden as they cool. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving. I let them cool on the baking sheet and don't use a wire rack.
  7. Cookies will stay airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Alternatively, the unbaked cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months, so consider baking only as many cookies as you like and save the remaining dough for baking in the future when you want.
