Cook Time 17 minutes
Servings 36 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter 3 sticks
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1-1/2 bags
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees & line 2-3 large baking sheets with parchment & set aside.
  • In a very large mixing bowl, cream your butter & both sugars together until whipped & well combined.
  • Mix in eggs & vanilla.
  • Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt & mix until just combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips, oats, coconut & pecans.
  • Scoop about 1/4 cup of the dough & roll into balls.
  • Place onto the prepared baking sheet – making sure to space the cookies about 3 inches apart for spreading.
  • Bake 15-17 minutes or until the edges are just barely golden brown. Bake 10-12 minutes if making tablespoon-size balls of dough.
  • Remove from the oven & immediately place additional chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies, pressing lightly to make sure they get a bit melty.
  • Allow to cool another 2-5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to continue to cool to room temperature.
  • Once cooled, transfer to an airtight container & store at room temperature.
