I used gluten free flour, vegan imitation butter, vegan chocolate chips, and apple sauce replaced the egg. They were the best cookies ever!
We have a cookie bake day once a year at Christmas time and this year I wanted a choc chip pecan cookie and was lucky to find this delicious recipe. It highlights the vanilla, pecan, chocolate and salt flavors so well. We had a houseful of family and this cookie was such a hit that I was asked to make another batch the next day. Thanks for this winner recipe!
I love that this recipe doesn't call for cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, etc....Those spices completely alter the flavor profile of a chocolate chip cookie, and in my opinion, completely ruins them. Instead this recipe highlights the flavors of the pecans, the dark chocolate, vanilla and the nutty oats. All subtle, yet delicious, complementary flavors. I measured out my portions pretty accurately, and didn't come anywhere close to having 44 cookies- so I think that may be inaccurate.
Fabulous recipe! Take it up another notch - Add about 1 C of Kraft Caramel Bits (usually in the baking aisle and resemble chocolate chips but made of caramel) and you have a cookie to die for! My favorite cookie at Great Harvest Bread Co.(which is only available in September) is an oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips, pecans & caramel pieces, and now I can enjoy that taste all year round. Thanks Martha!

Awesome recipe, thanks again Martha! I add the pecans or walnuts, did the half dark and half milk choco chip mix and used dried cherries. The best! Love these.
Excellent, excellent, excellent!
I didn't put quite the full cup of toasted pecans prescribed, but added in some golden raisins and perhaps just a FEW more choc chips more than was called for. Did 1/2 bittersweet and 1/2 milk chips.
These cookies are truly wonderful.
Try having JUST ONE. :)
