Anything is possible when you’re baking with Betty, so take your favorite oatmeal and crisp rice cereal and give a breakfast staple a sweet cookie change up. These oatmeal coconut pecan cookies are packed with flavor and a delightfully light and crispy crunch! They are thin but not too thin, slightly soft in the center with crispy edges and their texture is perfect for dipping into a glass of cold milk. This recipe is simple to make with no rolling or shaping required, just make sure to measure each of your ingredients carefully. We suggest doubling the recipe since we haven’t met anyone that only eats one of these light and flavor-filled oatmeal coconut cookies. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Substitute chopped walnuts for the pecans for a variety in your crunch.
  • Double your recipe and freeze half of the dough for later. To freeze cookie dough, make your cookie dough balls and drop them on the cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Pack as many as you can on your sheet without letting them touch. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the freezer until the cookie dough balls are frozen, about 20-30 minutes. Take out the frozen cookies and place them in a sealed freezer-safe plastic bag. Label the bag with the date prepared and baking instructions so you will be ready to easily bake again! When you are ready to bake, let the cookies sit out for about 15 minutes before baking as directed. Make sure to use your dough within three months for best results.
