Oatmeal Coconut Dream Cookies Recipe

If you are looking for the BEST cookies to dip in milk, I highly recommend these Oatmeal Coconut Dream Cookies. They are easy to make, delicious, and full of all the things. They are one of the best cookies I have ever tasted.

The title speaks for itself. These cookies are a dream come true. They are delicious, so easy to make, impossible to mess up and are a crowd favorite.

You’ll love them. The combination of oatmeal, coconut, walnuts, chocolate chips, and a cookie, really is amazing.

These are quite rich and filling, so they are perfect for serving a crowd. They are also the best cookie to dip in milk. I would even say better than Oreo’s.

tips for making soft and chewy cookies

  • Knowing how your cookie’s, ingredients, combine and react together, is key to making soft and chewy cookies.
  • The main key in making soft and chewy cookies, is how your butter is softened.If you melt your butter in the microwave, completely, your cookies are going to be a little crunchy. You want your butter to be softened at room temperature, not melted, so the dough will be thicker, and not so liquidy.If you are using margarine, it doesn’t need to be softened or microwaved. But if you are using butter, it should be the same texture as margarine. Either one would work for this recipe.
  • It’s also important that you add the ingredients in order. The ingredients react differently, when added at different times. We highly recommend following the recipe.
  • If you are making the cookies ahead of time, and are planning to store them, we recommend using an airtight plastic container, as well as layering them with wax or parchment paper between each layer.
  • We also recommend and have placed a piece of bread in the container to keep them extra fresh. It sounds weird, but it actually works. I don’t exactly know the science behind it, but I do know it works. Try it if you don’t believe me.

what could I replace the walnuts with?

This recipe calls for walnuts, however, some people aren’t big fans. If this is you, don’t worry, we have a few replacements for you to try.

    • Hi Katie. I went in and looked at the recipe, and it's not a big batch of cookie dough. I sided with you and I think it's 2 teaspoons of vanilla. (Which could still be a lot.) I think 2 Tablespoons of vanilla would overpower the whole recipe. Thanks for catching that. The recipe has been changed.
  1. Followed the recipe perfectly. Softened the butter at room temperature and mixed in the sequence specified. Cookies kept spreading flat when cooked. Used a new box of baking soda too. Tried batches with both dark and light brown sugar - same results. I finally resorted to substituting 2 tsp of dual active baking powder in place of the 1/2 tsp baking soda called for in the recipe. The cookies finally stopped going flat, but still don't look as "puffy" as the picture shown above.
