  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened, depending on your preference)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk (whole or evaporated)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


1. Prepare Ingredients:

  • Measure and prepare all the ingredients before starting.

2. Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, shredded coconut, and chopped pecans. Mix well and set aside.

3. Prepare Praline Mixture:

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add granulated sugar, milk, and a pinch of salt.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring continuously. Once it reaches a boil, let it cook for 1-2 minutes, continuing to stir.

4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

  • Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour the praline mixture over the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stir well to combine, ensuring all the dry ingredients are coated.

5. Form Cookies:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet to form cookies.

6. Allow to Set:

  • Let the cookies cool and set at room temperature for at least 1-2 hours. This allows them to firm up.

7. Optional: Chill in the Refrigerator:

  • If you prefer a firmer texture, you can chill the cookies in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour.

8. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Once the cookies have set, they are ready to be enjoyed. Serve and savor the delicious combination of pecan praline and coconut flavors.
