Strawberry Cookies {Fresh Strawberries}

Quick, easy fresh strawberry cookies recipe, homemade with simple ingredients. Soft, chewy and full of fresh berries, shredded coconut, walnuts and oats.

This recipe comes from my dear Mom, who makes these cookies a lot during strawberry season. They are slightly crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside and trust me, you can taste the strawberries in every single bite! This Easy Strawberry Shortcake {With Bisquick Mix} and these Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes {From Scratch} are also delicious ways to highlight the bright and sweet flavor of strawberries in your baking.

Variations for fresh strawberry chocolate chip cookies

Strawberry cake mix cookies– These are different from the recipe below. To make the cake mix version, you will need to use a strawberry cake mix instead of the chocolate one in this  Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies Recipe.

Make cookie sandwiches– Take two cookies and fill them with icing in between. I think cream cheese frosting would be awesome. You could also use Strawberry Frosting {With Fresh Strawberries) or Brown Sugar Frosting {So fluffy!}.

Add a drizzle- Such as melted chocolate, glace icing, or powdered sugar glaze (vanilla cake glaze).

White chocolate cookies– Omit the walnuts and semisweet chocolate chips and only use white chocolate chips in the cookie dough.

Make it Vegan– A flax egg can be used to replace the real egg in this recipe, and then use dairy-free chocolate chips as well.

Try other chocolate chip flavors– Such as dark chocolate, peanut butter, or even butterscotch.

Use other berries– Instead of strawberries, you can use blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. Make sure to dice them small.

Omit all the other “add-ins”– Such as chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts. Use only strawberries to give these cookies a more fruity flavor.

Make a bigger batch– Simply double the ingredients to make enough cookies for a crowd.

Add sprinkles– For more color and fun. You can use sprinkles that match your theme such as Valentine’s Day, 4th of July, or a birthday.

Tips and techniques

Coconut oil must be melted– Because this allows it to blend together smoothly with the rest of the ingredients.

Berries must be patted dry– Because this prevents the dough from becoming too watery.

Use old fashioned oats rather than quick cooking oats– Because this makes for the best chewy texture.

Don’t use dried strawberries or frozen strawberries in these fresh cookies– Because the taste is just not the same.

You must line the pan with parchment paper– Because this prevents the cookies from sticking to the pan.

How do I know the cookies are done? They will be golden brown along the edges.

Don’t over-mix– Mix the dough until just combined to prevent the cookies from becoming dense.

Why are my cookies flat? Why did they spread so much? This is usually caused by not measuring the flour accurately. When there is too little flour to hold the fat together the cookies spread and become flat. Make sure to measure as carefully and accurately as you can.
