Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old fashioned whole rolled oats
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup date syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup bittersweet dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pecans

Instructions

  • Mix the oats, flour, wheat germ, baking soda, salt, and coconut flakes in a medium bowl. Whisk until mixed in.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, date syrup, egg, and vanilla, and continue whisking until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and continue whisking on low speed until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans. Mix well. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper or a Silpat. Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough on the baking sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the edges and top are barely golden.

Notes

The dough can be prepared in advance and kept in the refrigerator for up to a week in a tight container. To enjoy this cookie the next day, microwave it for 30 seconds or until the chocolate melts.
