I really didn’t think I’d find a cookie recipe I’d like as much as my pudding cookie recipe. Pudding cookies never fail me and are always soft and chewy. But these coconut chocolate chunk cookies pleasantly surprised me. They didn’t spread out flat as pancakes like other classic chocolate chip cookie recipes I’ve tried and the flavor and texture were spot on.

The hint of coconut was the perfect addition and paired delightfully well with the semisweet chocolate chunks. Of course, what doesn’t pair well with chocolate?

There’s nothing fancy about these coconut chocolate chunk cookies—no special ingredients or need for refrigeration before baking. I do recommend using a scoop (as I do for pretty much all my cookie recipes) because it’s the best way to make your cookies turn out evenly. I so love perfectly portioned cookie dough!
