  • Yield: 30 cookies 1x


  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, in solid form
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, plus 1 yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups trail mix


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the coconut oil and brown sugar together for 2 minutes on medium speed until smooth, scraping the sides as necessary. Add in the egg, yolk and vanilla and continue mixing until smooth.
  4. With the mixer still on medium add in the baking soda and salt and mix for 30 seconds longer.
  5. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, coconut and oats mixing until incorporated.
  6. Finally stir in the trail mix.
  7. Using a 2 tablespoon sized cookie scoop, place the dough onto the prepared baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 9-10 minutes until the edges are lightly golden, making sure not to over-bake. The cookies might even seem a tiny bit under-baked, this is fine.
  9. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.


Use any kind of trail mix you prefer. I used one with M&Ms, chocolate chips, peanuts, almonds, raisins and peanut butter chips.
