How long do they keep?

As with all cookies, these taste best straight out of the oven, but they do have a pretty good shelf life. Once fully cooled, transfer them to an airtight container and they will keep at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Can you freeze them?

Yes, when frozen, these chocolate chip oatmeal cookies will keep for up to 2 months. Freeze them solid on a baking sheet before transferring to a freezer bag, or place them in a container with the layers separated by parchment.

Thaw frozen cookies at room temperature for an hour before enjoying.

What are the best oats to use?

I like to use quick oats for my oatmeal cookie. They have a chewy texture but aren’t too tough. Old fashioned oats work well too and produce a chewier cookie. It’s best to stay away from steel cut oats.

  • Don’t overwork your cookie dough, or too much gluten will develop. The flour should be just combined before you fold in your coconut and chocolate.
  • It’s best to cream your butter with a stand mixer rather than by hand. This way you get more air into the dough and your cookies will be light and fluffy.
  • Soften your butter before making the cookies. I like to take mine out of the fridge an hour before I plan to make them.
  • Place the cookie dough on a parchment lined sheet so that they don’t get stuck.
  • Allow room between the balls of dough on the baking sheet as they will spread during baking.
