Pecan & Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pecan & Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies also known as “I Want to Marry You Cookies” are as good as they sound. Oatmeal raisin cookies are the butt of a lot of jokes – I make them too. I don’t hate the cookies, but they’re definitely not my favorite. But, these cookies with oats are actually delicious because they have chocolate chips and pecans!

I can’t remember the exact source from the recipe I have, but I found this one via Pinterest and while it’s quite possible this is not the one I copied down to make these cookies, it looks close enough!

You can click on the link above for the exact recipe, but I’ve got photos below of all the steps I took to make these cookies and I’ll let you know any changes I made.

Pecan & Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

In bowls I measured out oats, chopped pecans, white, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

I also mixed together some of the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

After the butter melts, add in the sugar. The recipes for these cookies usually call for both brown and granulated sugar. I only use brown sugar for these cookies and I also use less than the amount called for in the recipes to cut down on sugar and also I find some cookies to be too sweet.

Once the sugar is all incorporated, chill the mixture for 10 minutes. Then, I transferred the mixture to my mixing bowl. Some recipes call for you to mix the rest of the ingredients by hand, but I used my stand mixer.

Add in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and then the flour and oats mixture. Next, add in the pecans and chocolate chips.

Once it’s also mixed together, you’ll take the dough and roll it by hand in to balls. You can add more pecans and chocolate chips on top. I only added half a pecan to the top of each and I didn’t add any more chocolate chips because they all seemed to have enough.

Chill the rolled out dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and then bake at 325 for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. I did make a note that the recipe I used said this recipe would yield 2 dozen, but I was able to get 5 dozen! I think I just roll my cookies smaller, but I don’t think they’re that small. I think they’re a good size!

Let me know if you try these delicious cookies!
