Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by theatrenut

These cookies are absolutely FANTASTIC. I took the original recipe idea from and modified it to make it my own... I knew that these cookies were a keeper when my oatmeal-cookie-HATING younger brothers DEVOURED half the batch right off the cooling rack!!! I wasn’t even done baking yet! My parents also RAVED over these cookies and now ask me to make them for their bake sales, parties, co-workers, etc. Which isn’t a problem because they are sooo easy to make. Hope you enjoy! Note: I recommend using an electric mixer for the ingredients up until adding the oatmeal, chocolate chips, and pecans... It works wonderfully
