  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 cup uncooked regular oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant.
  2. 2. Whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients. Beat sugars and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Add vanilla and egg, beating until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until combined. Stir in toasted pecans and mini-morsels.
  3. 3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

  5. Try This Twist!
  6. Reduced-Sugar Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, and Pecan Cookies: Substitute granular sweetener for granulated sugar and brown sugar sweetener for brown sugar.
  7. Note: We tested with Whey Low 100% All Natural Granular Sweetener and Gold Brown Sugar Sweetener. This variation is slightly more dense and has a chewier texture, but it's equally delicious.
