A soft, cakey cookie filled with chewy shredded coconut, rich chocolate chips, and plenty of chai spice.


  • 1/2 C Unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 C + 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 C Chai Spice Latte mix
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 C All-purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 C Chocolate chips
  • 1 C Shredded coconut
  • 3 tbsp Granulated sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Allow butter to come to room temperature. Beat on medium speed for a couple minutes until soft.
  3. Combine butter with sugar and chai mix and beat on medium speed until well creamed together.
  4. Add egg and vanilla. Mix into butter and sugar until egg is well beaten.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Slowly add into batter and beat on medium low speed until well combined, dough will start to form.
  6. Add chocolate chips and coconut and mix to incorporate.
  7. Spoon out two tablespoons of dough, roll in granulated sugar and place onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350° F for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden brown. Allow to cool for several minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool.


Double this recipe for 3 dozen cookies. I used sweetened Chai spice latte mix from Trader Joes.
