What Type of Oatmeal Do You Use for Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Reach for old fashioned oats for baking oatmeal coconut chocolate chip cookies. They will bake up really nicely, and the oats will offer a nice chew factor to the cookies that you won’t get with quick oats. 

Sweetened or Unsweetened Coconut Flakes for Oatmeal Coconut Cookies 

These oatmeal coconut cookies are sweet enough so reach for an unsweetened coconut flake. If you use sweet flakes it could really make these cookies overly sweet and not as tasty.

How to Store Oatmeal Coconut Cookies 

Allow the oatmeal coconut cookies to cool on your wire cooling rack. Once fully cooled, transfer to a sealable bag or place in an airtight container. They will last 3-5 days on the counter. If you want to freeze them, see below the best way to freeze these oatmeal cookies. 

How to Freeze Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Once your cookies have fully cooled place them in a sealable freezer bag. Then toss in the freezer for up to 1-3 months. When you want a cookie just pull one out and allow to thaw. 

I do this often since my son and I mainly eat sweets. When I want a cookie I just grab a few and allow to thaw. Tastes just as good as the first day!

Instructions say to add salt with the dry ingredients. How much salt? It’s not listed in the ingredients above the instructions.
