Simply A (RD) Fact: Rolled oats are a great source of soluble fiber, which is essential in heart and digestive health! Plus, they taste absolutely delicious!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • ⅔ cup of brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips, save 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • ½ cup chopped pecans, save about 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • ½ cup pretzel pieces (approximately ½-inch in size), save about 1 tablespoon for garnish
Instructions
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, oat bran, baking soda, and salt. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, add in the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat ingredients together until well combined and fluffy.
  3. Add in eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla extract.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix the cookie batter until just combined.
  5. Stir in the pecans, pretzels, and chocolate chips. Cover the batter and place in the fridge to chill for 1-2 hours.
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 350°. Portion out cookie dough into golf ball-sized portions and place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Garnish with extra pecans, pretzels, and chocolate chips. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies start to turn golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with a big glass of milk!
