  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking oatmeal)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (e.g., pecans or walnuts)
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and packed brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract to the creamed mixture, mixing until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined.
  6. Stir in the rolled oats, semisweet chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and shredded coconut. The dough will be thick and chunky, boasting a harmonious blend of textures.
  7. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a couple of inches of space between each cookie.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 11-13 minutes or until the edges turn a golden brown, while the centers remain soft. Keep a close eye to avoid over-baking.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
