Yummmm! I love these cookies with a bit of bran flakes to give it a little crunch. I get 60 3-inch cookies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine and sift flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine oatmeal, bran flakes, pecans, coconut, chocolate chips and cranberries. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream the butter. Add both sugars. Add egg, oil, and vanilla.
  5. Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture, blending well -- I add a third at a time.
  6. Add chocolate chips mixture.
  7. Drop by heaping teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. [The amount of cookies you get will depend on how large you make them.].
  8. Bake at 350 until cookies are lightly browned, about 15 minutes depending on your oven. Wait a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
