Prep time: 20 Minutes

Total time: 20 Minutes

Yield: Makes 24 cookies



  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup Old fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture until just combined.
  4. With a rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chunks, raisins, pecans, and oats.
  5. Drop generous 2 inch balls of dough, spaced 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets, and flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp rotating pans halfway through.
  6. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
