  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups quick cook oats
  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 2 cups pecans, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a handheld electric mixer set on medium speed, cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time beating after each addition. Mix in vanilla.
  • Gradually beat in flour mixture to butter mixture just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips, oats, coconut, and pecans until evenly dispersed through the dough.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, or 1/4 cup measuring cup, shape dough into balls. Place on prepared baking sheets 3 inches apart and flatten into discs. Bake in preheated oven 15-17 minutes or until edges are lightly golden. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets 3-5 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
