Fudgy Brownie-like Cookie with Coconut and Walnuts?

I happened on a cookie like this that (gasp) our grocery store was selling in the bakery section. I've not been able to get the recipe from them. It's a very moist chocolate cookie, almost like a brownie (but definitely a drop cookie) with chocolate chunks, walnuts, and coconut in it. Of course, I believe there's crack in them too, with how I've been going through them, but that's another story.

Any recipe ideas?

  1. I don't know of a particular recipe, but I can probably point you in a particular direction.

    Try to use the basic dough for Dorie Greenspan's World Peace Cookies (link below) and include 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/4 cup walnuts, and 1/4 cup coconut instead of just the bittersweet chocolate chips - you could probably up the chocolate chip and nut level too if you want. And don't worry, I don't find the dough particularly salty like she describes, but more rich and brownie-like. My husband, ironically, calls the original recipe, "crack cookies" which is his highest compliment.
