Cowboy Cookies

I call these Everything Cookies, but since most people know these as Cowboys, there ya go! These are chocolate chip cookies that have decided to eat everything else in the pantry πŸ™‚ Super delicious. What’s good about this recipe is you can add or not add anything you want. Don’t like coconut? Fine, leave it out. Want to add raisins? Sure, go ahead! So, come on! Start your ovens…

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick oats (or old fashioned rolled oats)
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and oats. Set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together oil and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and whisk well. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Add nuts, coconut and chocolate chips and stir until everything is incorporated. Place dough in fridge for about 10-15 minutes.

I like my cookies on the bigger side, so with a 1/4 cup, drop cookie dough on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes depending on size. Let cool on cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
