Island Cookies with coconut and pecans that are inspired by the TV show Lost. Yes, that TV show. The TV show everyone loves, but no one can agree on if the ending was complete garbage, or the perfect ending.
Let’s set the record straight: it was complete garbage. Damon and Carleton promised us for 6 seasons that they weren’t in purgatory, and then ended the show that they were in purgatory. There were so many possible mind bending, fantastical, gripping and dimensional directions they could have gone.
They were just lazy.
So don’t confuse these island inspired coconut and pecan cookies as a tribute to the creators. They are wholeheartedly not a tribute. In fact, on the anniversary of the season finale every year I write them a note on social media to remind them how I remain eternally disappointed in them. It’s a commitment.
Coconut and Pecan Island Cookies
All that withstanding, the inspiration of the potential of the TV show Lost created these amazing coconut and pecan cookies. They are absolutely delicious in all the best ways possible.
All the goodies in these cookies originate from an island source, coconut, pecans, chocolate, maybe the island itself… They have everything a good cookie should. They are crispy and crunchy, and the sweetness of the coconut resonates and compliments the chocolate and the pecans.

I love these baking sheets.
My favorite and durable baking silicone mats.
Full disclosure: I’ve never used a cookie scoop. I’d love to hear why people love them.

Sounds delicious. I love lost – what a great present to me, to have the lost premire on my birthday!
Truly inspirational! I wouldn't mind living on that island – any island actually – but that island with those cookies!…
Have fun watching Lost!!! 🙂
I can't wait for LOST too! I'm glad to see there are other fans out there. Those cookies sound so good!
Coconut, pecans and chocolate together is just about the best combination EVER! Wait, there's sweetened condensed milk, too?! I'd happily be stranded on a 'desserted' island if I had these for provisions. Happy watching!
I have got to try these! They look absolutely perfect!
I just started watching Lost from the pilot and am on season 3. I started a couple of weeks ago and better hurry up. I had never seen a single episode before, but for some reason the commercials for the final season made me want to watch. Glad you were inspired to give us all something great! 🙂
The cookies look wonderful! Wait, WHAT?! This is the last season of Lost? Oh, how WILL I go on? 😉
I am not a fan of Lost, but I am a fan of your blog and a fan of these cookies! 🙂
I don't watch Lost either, but I would start if you would supply the cookies!
My dad is big fan of LOST also and eating these cookies while watching LOST would be a perfect start to the season, even if it's the last one! Only thing is that he's allergic to coconut, so I might try to use dried mango for his batch, but for me I'm all about the coconut! Thanks for inspiring me to make that night a yummy one!
yummy yummy cookies and a good movie.
look so yummy! adding to my to be tried recipes… never watched Lost but glad you were inspired

Those cookies are filled with yumminess! I'm assuming the condensed milk is sweetened condensed and not evaporated. Am I assuming correctly?
Have a delicious time watching Lost.
I love lost. I should really watch the old seasons before the Final Season. So sad to see it come to an end.
Has anyone toasted the coconut? I wonder if it would have a better flavor and crunch?
