Chocolate Coconut Pecan Cookies

I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog lately. As some of you may know, I started an online Master’s program through Iowa State just over a month ago. Go Cyclones! The combination of school, working full time (plus a longer commute), and completing a few other projects at the new house has been an adjustment. All is well though, and I am definitely getting the hang of it all! If you follow my Instagram stories, you may have noticed that I am still sneaking in a run here and there too. 16 miles for the weekend so far! Yeah!

Though this is long overdue, I wanted to share a recipe with 3 of my favorite ingredients:

  • Chocolate

  • Coconut

  • Pecans

YUM! Who else agrees? I made these cookies over Labor Day weekend when my family visited, including my relative John all the way from Japan! Let’s just say these cookies didn’t last long. In fact, they were gone before John even arrived… If you are looking for a tasty recipe for a family gathering, tail-gate, or just because, these cookies will disappear in no time!

Chocolate Coconut Pecan Cookies

½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened

½ cup shortening

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1½ cups flour

2 cups old-fashioned oats

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup flaked, unsweetened coconut

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening, brown sugar, and sugar with an electric mixer. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until combined. Fold in the oats, chocolate chips, pecans, and coconut. If time allows, recommend chilling the dough overnight or for at least four hours.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350° F. Scoop cookie dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 11-14 minutes. The bake times will depend on the size of your cookies.

If desired, gently place additional chocolate chips on top when the cookies are soft immediately after coming out of the oven.
