  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted and cooled
  • 4 oz dark chocolate bar roughly chopped
  • Flaky sea salt for topping, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk melted butter and sugar until smooth. Whisk in molasses, egg, and vanilla.
  • Add oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to liquid mixture and stir until a soft dough forms. (dough will be slightly sticky) Gently stir toasted pecans and chocolate chunks.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough into 1-in balls and place on prepared baking sheets 1-2 inches apart. Bake cookies at 350F 9-10 minutes or until edges are golden (cookies will appear underdone in the middle---this ok) Sprinkle cookies with flaky sea salt if desired.
  • Cool cookies 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Enjoy!
