Pecan & Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Pecan & Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Sometimes, you just need a simple cookie, with ingredients that you almost always have on hand in your pantry with no running out to the store involved. This Pecan & Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe is exactly that,  I took an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe but jazzed up a little. These cookies were whipped up a while back and of course, I forgot to post the recipe. If you could only see my “Drafts” folder in the back-end of my website, you would yell “Karlynn!! Get the heck to work! Gimme those recipes!”

These were a delicious little change from the ordinary oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, the coconut and the pecans gave them a delightful boost of “chew” and “crunch” respectively.

How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F
  • Cream the butter and sugars together with a mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time until combined. Add in the vanilla, mix in.
  • Whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing thoroughly. Add the oats, combine.
  • Stir (by hand) in the coconut, pecans and chocolate chips until combined.
  • Bake in the 350 degree oven for 10-11 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

Can I substitute steel oats for rolled oats?

NO! Steel cut oats are not used in cookie recipes with good results, they are too hard and don’t get soft and chewy. Used rolled or large flake oats. If you use the instant oats, the cookies won’t have the same chewy texture. You need oats that won’t break down in the cookie for the best results.Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  1. You had me at pecans! I’m such a sucker for adding pecan to anything, and oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies are the best anyway. I’m not sure how I feel about the coconut – after years on the keto diet I’m a bit coconut-ed out, but I’ll give it a try because do still love the combination of chocolate and coconut quite a bit. This is a lovely recipe, and I’ve bookmarked it for the next time I have a craving for cookies!

    Hello,  Just made these and they were delicious.  The ingredient list calls for baking soda, but the instructions talk about baking powder.  Does it matter which is used?
