These are good but need to be eaten the day they are made, as they get dry

This is a tasty change over traditional chocolate chip cookies. The oatmeal, coconut, and pecans give a nice taste and texture.

My grandma and then my mom made these cookies! We always called them Grandma Foiles’ Oatmeal Cookies! The only difference was they used cooked raisins instead of toasted coconut. I don’t thing grandma liked coconut very much. I am going to try them with coconut the next time I make them.

My mom used to bake these for us when I was really young. Had all the same ingredients as these, and I remember her making them big, and they were chewy in the middle, crisp on the edges. I will try baking these for my granddaughter, but I wish my mom was still here to make them for her...

I've been eating these all of my life. My Mom used to make these when we were kids, but they carried our family name. She got tired of making just chocolate chip, or just oatmeal, etc., so she dumped everything in the bowl, and we all loved them. Now I make them gluten-free for my husband by switching out the flour and using GF oats. Still a family favorite!

Flour can have humidity which changes your amount. At 7,200 feet we often must reduce sugar by 1 to 2 tablespoons due to cell structure changes from air.pressure. We also may need to increase flour by up to 1/4 cup. May reduce the amount of fat due to cell structure also and often need to add 1-3 teaspoons of water. Here in Laramie , WY baking is definately the science of chemistry.

I love this recipe! I’ve made these cookies many times since stumbling upon the recipe two years ago. The cookies are crunchy on the outside while chewy on the inside.

These cookies are very good, crunchy on the outside and slightly chewy in the middle. I am going to try making these again substituting raisins and walnuts (I have on hand most of the time) for the chocolate chips and pecans I have on hand less frequently.
