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

 Tips and Tricks for Making Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Under bake your cookies, always, This ensures that you get a soft, chewy oatmeal cookie and not one as hard as a rock.
  • You don’t have to add in the coconut and the pecans, you can just make a plain oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips, but this is probably the best cookie ever thanks to the pecans and the coconut!
  • You can sub in any nuts that you want instead of the pecans, this recipe is all about using what you have in your pantry

    I have not yet made these cookies but have made some of your bundt cakes (especially the BlackBerry coconut one, absolutely wonderful). I have a question about the coconut used in the cookies; is it sweetened or unsweetened? The recipe does not specify. Thanks for sharing.

    I have been looking for a better oatmeal cookie recipe. I tried 3 recipes from my favorite bloggers. The dough has been in the freezer in the form of portioned out balls ready for the oven. Today I got them out, baked them, and had a taste test. Husband and I loved yours. I never considered coconut. It make all the difference. Also we liked the soft and chewy cookie part. Thank you for another easy delicious recipe. You are the best.

    Great cookies! I was looking for something like the “Kitchen Sink” cookie I had at a local bakery. I think your method of finishing the baking out of the oven is a good one. Thank you!5 stars

    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!5 stars

    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?
