These crunchy cowboy cookies are simple to make, with an addictive mix of coconut, pecans, oats, and chocolate chips.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup gently packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with a hand mixer, beat together the butter and both sugars on medium-high speed until thick and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Reduce speed to medium. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  5. Reduce speed to low, and slowly add the flour mixture, beating until just incorporated without overmixing. Add the oats, chocolate, pecans, and coconut and mix until combined.
  6. Using a large cookie scoop, drop dough onto the baking sheets, spacing a couple inches away from each other. Refrigerate the shaped dough for 10 minutes.
  7. Bake until the edges begin to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks to cool completely.
