  • 7 tablespoons salted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves and pieces
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and lay out two baking sheets. For easy cleanup, line the baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together.

  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth.

  4. Add the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda, then stir until a smooth batter forms.

  5. Pour in the oats, coconut, pecans, raisins, and chocolate chips. Mix well, until the mix-ins are coated in the batter and evenly distributed.

  6. Scoop up a golf ball-sized chunk. Form it into a ball and place it on a baking sheet, leaving two inches of space between cookies. Continue until the cookie dough is used up.

  7. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to finish cooling. Store airtight when completely cool.
