  • 1 cup butter softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup corn flakes
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped (and toasted!)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 6 ounces peanut butter chips (I used Reese's!)
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or large mixing bowl and electric mixer) add the egg, butter, sugars, vanilla, and beat on medium-high speed until creamy and well combined, about 4 minutes.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and beat on low speed until just combined.
  • Now add the chocolate and peanut butter chips, Cornflakes, coconut, pecans, and beat on low speed until just combined.
  • Chill the dough in the fridge for at least an hour, or up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, 1/4-cup measure, or your hands, form approximately 13 equal-sized portions of dough.*
  • Place on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart (I bake 8 cookies per sheet) and bake for about 12 to 14 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden; don’t overbake. Cookies firm up as they cool.
  • Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving.
