Black and White Coconut Cookies - Gluten Free or Not recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

These cookies are loaded with white and dark chocolate, in addition to a good amount of coconut. I was inspired by my favorite Dark Chocolate Coconut Blondies.

Chewy cookies with almost all of my favorite flavors, I’ve made these three times in the past month.

These were delicious warm from the oven and every bit as good two days later. If you aren’t sure what to do with the leftover egg white, these Cinnamon Roasted Pecans are a great plan.

Servings: 36


  • 1 cup butter
  • cups light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coconut

*Gluten-Free Alternative

  • cups brown rice flour
  • ½ cup tapioca starch
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum


  •  Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, remove it from the heat and add the sugar. Stir until the sugar is well incorporated and mostly smooth. Let cool for a few minutes.
  • While the mixture is cooling, mix together the dry ingredients and set aside. Whisk together the egg, egg yolk and vanilla, and then add to the sugar and butter mixture.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients in three stages and stir to combine. COOL COMPLETELY before adding the chocolate chips and coconut. Stir well to make sure the chocolate chips and coconut are evenly distributed.
  • Scoop the dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and roll it into balls with your hands. Press down lightly to flatten each one before baking.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack.

    Is it just coincidence that the color of the background in the first picture is the exact same color as the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street? I think not! 😉

    I am just starting to cook gluten free baked goods. Where do I find xanthem gum, potato starch, tapioca starch and rice flour? Thank you, Cathy

      You should be able to find them all at most health food stores and many grocery stores are beginning to carry most of them as well. If you can't find them in your area, Amazon is a great source for almost any GF flour I have looked for as well.
