These are inspired by Laura Bush's recipe. I wanted to give them a go, switch out ingredients for better nutrition, change the ratios for a softer cookie. My family loved them! I've learned though...pecans or nuts in a cookie can be a little polarizing. Some people love them, some people are repulsed by them. So just know your audience lol. I think this cookie is very filling. So it did make a great afternoon snack.
makes about 30 cookies
Ingredients: 3/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 coconut sugar
1/2 tbs vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups fresh milled soft white wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbs cinnamon
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecan
1/2 cup shredded coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees on convection if you have it.
Cream together softened butter, sugars, and cinnamon. Add eggs and vanilla and mix. Add flour, baking soda, salt Mix until combined, and add pecans, coconut flakes, oats, and chocolate chips last. This dough will be firmer. Use a small cookie scoop and drop them on a cookie sheet. Bake 12 at a time, and 8-10 minutes. 8 for a softer cookie, 10 for a firmer cookie. Let them cool, and enjoy!
