Coconut Cookies

Coconut is one of my favorite tropical fruits! It’s a wonderful fruit where you can use almost every part of the coconut including the milk, water, and meat. I enjoy coconut water on a regular basis to stay hydrated or to replace Gatorade which contains unnatural chemicals. It’s a delight to drink coconut water directly from a fresh coconut which I’ve had the pleasure of trying at one of the Munich festivals!

Coconut is one of those flavors that I find very hard to resist in gelato, ice cream, or baked goods~ I love coconut cookies, cupcakes, cakes, and coconut sweets! I hope you’ll enjoy these coconut cookies! I plan to upload more recipes on coconut baked goods so be sure to check them out~

Yield: 9 cookies
Time: 20 min


  • ½ cup high quality butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F with racks in the middle. Lay out enough parchment paper to cover the baking tray.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Cream butter and brown sugar in an electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract until fluffy.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture until well mixed. Slowly blend in coconut flakes.
  5. Gently make golf sized balls from the dough and spread out the balls so they’re not too close to each other on the baking tray.
  6. Bake for 9-10 minutes. The edges should be a golden color. Let it cool and enjoy!
