Donna Hay's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies. A Donna Hay recipe. There’s not much more to say is there?

*This recipe is taken from Donna Hay’s Modern Classics Book Two.


  • 125 g butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups plain flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 185 g milk or dark chocolate, broken into chunks {I used choc bits and rounded up to 200 g}
  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C {375 F}. Place the butter, vanilla, and sugar in a bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the eggs. Stir in the flour, baking powder, coconut, and chocolate.
  2. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper, allowing room for the cookies to spread, and flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for ten to twelve minutes or until lightly browned.

*Please note: I used a teaspoon to measure them out, a little heaped. I only flattened them ever so slightly and they were quite chunky, so if you want them flatter press down a little more. I also baked mine for fifteen minutes to get the golden colour, and they were still nice and chewy inside.


  1. Yum and you always have beautiful photos to accompany the recipes.

  2. I am so happy to see this recipe as it’s my all-time favourite Chocolate chip recipe!! The page in my cookbook is totally covered in flour and bits of cookie dough! Thanks for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! xx



    1. Haha! I borrowed it from the library yesterday and was baking them about half an hour later! I posted it so I would have the recipe when the book gets returned! They are so good btw.
