Cowboy Cookies!! | The best chocolate chip cookies EVER!

I loooooooooooove cookies, is there a human out there that doesn’t?! But Cowboy Cookies? Dead. I was introduced to this recipe when I married Brian, it’s been in his family for as long as he can remember. I’ve not made a different chocolate chip cookie in over ten years — they’re THAT good! I’ve shared the recipe on Instagram and Snapchat several times before and I get DM’s all the time for it. I thought I’d finally give it a home on the blog!

– Step 1: Cream the butter and sugars. 

– Step 2: Add eggs and vanilla. 

 – Step 3: Add dry ingredients. 

 – Step 4: Add oatmeal and coconut by hand. I never do it by hand because #lazy so you can definitely beat them in an they’ll turn out great. If you want, you can also add in chocolate chips and nuts. 

Step 5: Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. 

Don’t they look delish?!  Because of the oatmeal, I can basically justify them for breakfast, lunch and dinner and if I make a batch, I just plan on eating the whole thing.  They’re that good.  I hope you guys ENJOY!!!!  And when you try them out, come back here and let me know what you thought!

  1. Hi Abby, I ‘ve made the cookies today together with my daughter. She loves baking and she loves baking. So they are pretty tasty, but also a bit sweet. So I wondered if it was right for a cup of brown and white sugar to be added to the dough each time. The cups you used look a bit smaller as well. Maybe I’ll try the next with a little less sugar.

  2. My tip for every drop cookie I make that has baking soda is add like 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice with the vanilla and the cookies will have a softer crumb. It’s like the difference between regular and buttermilk pancakes. The bit of sour just makes all the difference.
