Are you new to Cowboy Cookies? I can’t believe I have never blogged about this recipe before. These are one of my favorite versions of a homemade chocolate chip cookie. I love the sweet crunch that the Frosted Flake cereal adds to these cookies. They are a little crunchy, jam packed with oatmeal-coconut goodness, and yet so chewy and soft. Really you could add anything to this cookie dough–craisins, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, chopped nuts, etc. The sky’s the limit with these cookies. Hope you love them 😉

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a sheet of parchment paper onto a cookie sheet.
  2. In a mixing bowl, with electric beaters, beat the butter until fluffy and white. Add the brown and white sugars to the butter until creamy and soft. Add the eggs and beat again until smooth. Add the cinnamon, powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, flour and oats. Mix until combined then add the crushed corn flakes, coconut and chocolate chips. Mix until combined.
  3. Spoon a mixture the size of a golf ball onto the cookie sheet, about 9-12 per pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on top. Don't over bake unless you like a crispy cookie. Any extra dough you have can be put in a ziploc bag and frozen for a later day.
