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.

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.
