Double Chocolate & Coconut Cookies

Growing up, I was not a fan of the chocolate and coconut combo at all. Bounty was pretty much the only such option available and I just didn’t like how it tasted. So for me, the two flavours were not to be combined. Ever.

Fast forward, many years later, my preferences evolved and I was exposed to many different things that worked with chocolate and I also grew to enjoy coconut as an ingredient a lot more,in general. So when I was looking around for something different to bake last year, and I’d used coconut in cookies, cakes anyway, I decided to club it with chocolate as a cookie. Believe me, I was not prepared for how much I would like this 🙂

These cookies are very easy to make, like any regular chocolate cookie, with the addition of some grated coconut in the batter.

It’s chocolate heaven, with the cocoa powder and chocolate chips, but the coconut has a nice hum throughout. No overpowering coconut, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

It’s a slightly wet batter and then the cookies spread out as they bake. They are crispy on the edges and chewy in the center, just how they should be 🙂

Once they cool, get right in! Or store them, if you have any self control :p

Happy Snacking!
