This week's new recipe is these delicious oat, coconut, and walnut chocolate chunk cookies. I shared these on Instagram while I was testing them and I had so many requests for the recipe. They make the perfect buttery texture-filled ‘bitsy’ choc chunk cookie.
I guess you could say these cookies are slightly "healthier" than a standard cookie recipe that uses regular sugar.
Also, you don't need to bake all 18 cookies at once. These cookies store perfectly as cookie dough balls in the freezer, ready to bake whenever you need, even one cookie at a time! Just add an extra minute or two to the baking time.
I also shared these live on 7 Sunrise here in Australia and have included the video above.
Enjoy the recipe, and as always, please let me know if you make it @gatherandfeast, and feel free to ask any questions.
- 125g salted butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups (200g) coconut sugar or 1 cup firmly packed (200g) brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cups plain (all-purpose flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (bi-carb soda)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup roasted walnuts, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup flaked or shredded coconut
- 160g mix of dark and milk chocolate, roughly chopped
- Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
- Cream together the butter and sugar in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. You could also use hand beaters or a large mixing bowl with a wooden spoon.
- Add the vanilla and egg and beat together until combined.
- Fold in the remaining ingredients until just combined.
- Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow the cookie dough to rest.
- Roll the cookie dough into 3 tablespoons (60g) sized balls and place onto paper-lined trays, roughly 5-6 cookies to a tray to allow for spreading.
- Bake at 180°C/350°F for 12-15 minutes and until golden around the edges.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray for at least 20 minutes.
- Store any remaining cookies in an airtight container in the pantry or fridge.
