These Chocolate Chip Cookies are chewy, buttery, and packed full of rich chocolate flavour. This is THE best chocolate chip cookie recipe you will ever find! 

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 Recipe for Oatmeal Chia Coconut Hemp 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?

Why are These the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER?

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. It’s so important to begin with soft butter and virtually whip it with the brown sugar. While none of the ingredients are particularly ‘healthy’ the addition of chia and hemp seeds give the cookies a bit more protein and any football mom will feel good about that!

    Wow, Bernice, they look really good! And I’m sure they are delicious: chewy and crunchy at the same time, with the delightful flavor added from the coconut.

    These sound amazing – and that picture is gor-geous! The coconut must really add a nice chewiness to them, and I’ve never thought of adding chia and hemp seeds to my cookies but I might have to start!

    These sound wonderful. I can never say what sort of chocolate chip cookie is my favourite, because I love them all – crispy, cakey, soft, oatmeal, coconut, double chocolate – there are so many permutations!

      That’s what I like about these! They are soft but crunchy because of the coconut and chia seeds. They tick all the boxes for me.

    I made these and they were awesome! I’m making another batch today. I added ground flax seed. I cooked the second batch quite a bit longer than the first batch (forgot about them) and I found that I liked the browner cookies a little better. Thanks for the good and healthy recipe!
