Chunky, Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts, Pecans and Coconut aka Monster Cookies


Looking for a vegan and gluten-free cookie recipe that’s hearty, easy to make, and won’t leave you feeling guilty for popping 3 or 4 cookies in your mouth? Well, you are in for a lucky treat!  My chunky, chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with walnuts, pecans, and coconut (also known as Monster Cookies) will most definitely do the trick!

This marvelous cookie contains no oil, refined sugars, or flours.  Rather, it is packed with fiber, protein, and omega-3s!  You will love the texture of the oats, the crunch from the pecans and walnuts, the slight sweetness of the apple and coconut, and the punch of sweetness and creaminess from the chocolate chips.  These are truly heavenly. I hope you love them as much as I do!

  1. Hi Yvonne! I’ve been looking for a perfect oatmeal raisin cookie and this seems like a great one. I was wondering – if i omit the xanthan gum, pecans, and chocolate chips, will the recipe still be a success? I really want a classic oatmeal raisin walnut cookie. I suck at baking and cooking… it only seems right to ask a professional chef haha! Thanks in advance Yvonne!

  2. Hi Sandy!

    Yes, I think it should still work with the adjustments you mentioned! You can also replace the pecans for more walnuts. Please let me know how it turns out! Also, it just takes some practice to become a better baker. Happy baking! :)

    Have a great weekend, Sandy!

    All The Best,

  3. Oh wow that looks so delish!

  5. Hi Natalie!

    Great! I hope you enjoyed these cookies! :) <3

    All The Best,

  6. I want to make these but can the coconut shreds be replaced with anything? More oats? I don’t like the strong taste of coconut :/

  7. Hi Emily! I’m so sorry about my delayed response! You can omit the coconut shreds altogether. There isn’t a strong coconut taste in these cookies, even with the shreds!
