Ready In:
5 dozen




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray, line with parchment, and spray parchment.
  • Sift flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder into medium bowl.
  • Beat butter and sugars with mixer on medium-high until creamy, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and mix in the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
  • Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture. Beat until just incorporated. Beat in oats, chocolate, pecans and coconut. (Dough may be refrigerated up to 3 days).
  • Drop dough onto baking sheets 3" apart. A 1 1/2" cookie scoop works well.
  • Bake until edges of cookies begin to brown, 11-13 minutes. Transfer baking sheets to wire rack and cool 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks. Cool.

  1. Delicious cookies! Didn't change much..except I used 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I may have used slightly more chocolate chunks too. Thanks for sharing!


My passions: faith, family, food, and anything family history related. Almost nothing I like more than to chase headstones of my dearly departed ancestors. I've been working on a family cookbook for almost 2 years. (Need to figure out how I want to actually print it.) Enjoy learning about how what I grew up eating relates to my ancestors from Croatia and Alsace primarily. Enjoy following and forming new traditions within the walls of my home. Some would say I lead a very boring and mundane life. I would say it's just what I ordered. I have the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom - which is what I truly love. Feel it's the best calling anyone could ever have. I've truly been blessed!
