makes about 75 cookies


  • 2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • pinch of salt

  • 1 cup butter, softened (1/2 pound)

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 cups oats (Jane prefers old-fashioned oats, but quick oats would work too)

  • 2 cups shredded coconut

  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  • cup chocolate chips 


  1. Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 350F. 

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. 

  4. Add the reserved flour mixture; beat just until mixed. 

  5. Lastly, add the oatmeal, shredded coconut, pecans, and chocolate chips; beat just until the ingredients are incorporated.

  6. Using a #50 cookie scoop (about the size of 1 tablespoon), portion dough onto parchment or silicone lined baking sheet (I was able to get 15 on each 1/2 sheet tray). 

  7. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes. 

  8. Cool and enjoy!
