  • 14 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecan pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare cookie sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the softened butter and the sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla, then beat again.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon, and stir in. Add the chocolate chips and pecans, and stir until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  4. Use a spoon to scoop up enough cookie dough to form a ball about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Place the cookie dough balls evenly on the cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until you see that the tops of the cookies are tipped with brown color. Remove from the oven and leave on the cookie sheets to cool for at least 10 minutes. Then, move the cookies to a rack to finish cooling. Once they are completely cool, store in airtight bags or containers.
