Oatmeal Chia Coconut Hemp Chocolate Chip Cookies
Can I describe these cookies for you? They’re somehow chewy and crispy at the same time…and the secret is toasted coconut. The toasted coconut gives maximum flavour and crunch, so it’s worth the extra effort to toast it.
These cookies are buttery and oozing chocolate flavour, plus they are full of good ingredients to give you energy for the day.
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies. EVER.
These, my friends, are special cookies. If you’re looking for that perfect chocolate chip recipe, then you’ve come to the right place. Sure, you could google ‘perfect chocolate chip cookie’ and come up with what seems like an infinite amount of recipes, but really you only need one. This one.
Am I tooting my own horn or showing off? Nope…because this wonderful cookie recipe comes courtesy of another blogger and fellow Food Bloggers of Canada member, Laureen King. She’s the talented blogger behind Art & the Kitchen and whenever I need food or photography inspiration, her blog is one of the first I will visit.
I first made these cookies last fall for my youngest son’s first football game. His junior high school team took a bus from the school to the football field and I was concerned that many of the boys, well really they are almost men…some of them are over 6 feet, wouldn’t have their all important after school snack.
I wanted to make sure they had a bit of an energy boost before the big game. I’m sad to say that they lost and the whole season was pretty dismal, but many of the boys remember the cookies and ask if I’ll be sending any for the pre game bus rides next year. Who could resist a request like that?
How to Make Cookie Dough
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
I usually begin baking cookies by creaming the butter and sugar together. This takes a bit of elbow grease so using a stand mixer is a lifesaver!
Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture turns a nice pale yellow colour and becomes fluffy in texture. Add in the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla extract.
In a separate large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, oatmeal, coconut, chia or poppy seed, and hemp seed, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) together.
Gradually add the dry mixture into the wet mixture while the mixer is running on the lowest setting.
Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl and then finish mixing the cookie dough by hand. Add in the chocolate chips and mix to distribute.
How to Bake the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie
Ovens can often vary widely in temperature. When the temperature dial says 350 F, it may be still baking at a few degrees above or below this optimal cookie temperature.
In this cookie recipe, I have given a range of 10-14 minute baking time with 12 minutes being the average bake time. If you enjoy soft baked cookies, aim for less time, if you like them crunchy aim for more baking time.
The first time you bake these cookies, it’s important to keep a close eye on how they are baking so you end up with the kind of cookie texture you enjoy.
Cool the cookies on a wire rack, then enjoy!
