  • 1 cup salted butter (add 1 teaspoon salt if using unsalted) (230 grams)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter (250 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (130 grams)
  • 1 cup oats (80 grams)
  • 1 cup chopped and toasted walnuts and/or pecans (90 grams)
  • 1 cup bran (actual wheat bran, not cereal) (50 grams)
  • 1 cup shredded or flaked coconut (sweetened) (120 grams)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks or dark chocolate chips
  • Sea Salt optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and beat until blended,
  • Add eggs one by one and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in peanut butter, then add baking soda and beat until thoroughly blended. With mixer on the lowest speed or by hand, add the flour and stir until blended. Stir in the oats, nuts, bran, coconut and chocolate.
  • Scoop up dough by slightly rounded tablespoons and shape into balls. If desired, you may chill the dough first or you may shape the dough into balls and chill the balls before baking.
  • Arrange 2 ½ inches apart on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.


Chilling the dough will improve the shape of the cookie somewhat, but it's not necessary.
