Before you make these you should know that they are better the day after they are made.
Sure, you can eat them right after they come out of the oven, but they will not be great, and you may be incredibly disappointed in me.
SO JUST WAIT FOR IT.
Hide them away after you make them and the next morning treat yourself to one for breakfast (HOWEVER if you are still in elementary or middle school don’t tell your mom I said it was okay for you to eat cookies for breakfast. You should never have cookies for breakfast (unless it’s your birthday). Oh and please don’t drink coffee yet either, save it for later in life, okay?).Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup of butter (2 sticks)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Poudre Douce (or pie spice or cinnamon)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups oats
2 OVERFLOWING cups shredded coconut, toasted
1/2 OVERFLOWING cup pecans, chopped
1 OVERFLOWING cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and beat well. Add combined flour, Poudre Douce, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix well. Slowly stir in oats, coconut, pecans, and chocolate chips.
Place about 2 tablespoons worth of dough a couple of inches apart on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 13 minutes, let cool on sheet for a couple of minutes then move to wire rack to continue cooling. Store in airtight container for at least 12 hours before enjoying.
Remember, some things are worth the wait,
