  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 260 grams, use bread flour or AP
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature (114 grams)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening 96 grams or use 114 grams more butter
  • 1 cup 200 grams light brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 200 grams
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats 85 grams
  • 1 cup lightly crushed Bran Flakes 80 grams
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped and toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut optional


  • Thoroughly mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attached, beat butter (and shortening, if using) until creamy. Add sugars and continue beating for 4 minutes, stopping to scrape bowl often.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating on medium until blended, then beat in vanilla extract.
  • Add flour mixture and beat on low until incorporated, then stir in crushed Bran Flakes, oats, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, raisins, pecans and coconut (if using).
  • Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out 22 portions of dough and shape into compact balls. press down slightly (especially if you used shortening). Put them in the refrigerator, covered, for several hours or until ready to bake. Alternatively, you can them right away -- especially if you used shortening.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, arrange dough balls about 4 inches apart.
  • Bake one sheet at a time for 18 minutes or until cookies are brown and appear done. Let cool on baking sheet for about 4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. These aren’t great warm because the cereal is still soft. Make sure to let them cool before serving.
