  • 1 cup butter very soft
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup mild-tasting​ oil sunflower, grapeseed, canola or safflower will all work well)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats not quick oats
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup toffee bits
  • flaky sea salt for topping, if desired
  1. Preheat oven to 325˚Line two sheet pans with parchment paper for easy clean-up.
  2. Combine soft butter and sugars in a large bowl. Stir until well combined and creamy.
  3. Add the egg and stir well. Slowly add the oil and stir until combined. At first, it will seem like the oil is separated. Just keep stirring and it will all mix in. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.

  4. Sprinkle the flour, soda and salt evenly over the butter mixture. Stir until all flour has been incorporated. Add the Rice Krispies, oatmeal, coconut, pecans and toffee bits and stir until evenly incorporated.
  5. Scoop dough out onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. (If desired, bake for 10 minutes then remove and tuck a few extra chopped pecans into the top of each cookie. Sprinkle lightly with flaky sea salt. Return to oven for 6-10 minutes or until golden brown.)

  6. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 3-4 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Cookies will be soft at first but will firm up after several minutes.
