  • 1 1/3 cups (about 7 ounces) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup corn flakes
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


  1. 1

    Adjust two oven racks to upper and lower middle positions and preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

  2. 2

    In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Beat in eggs. Add flour mixture to bowl and beat until just combined.

  3. 3

    Stir in cornflakes, chocolate chips, and coconut. Drop dough by the rounded teaspoons onto prepared baking sheets, leaving a few inches between each cookie. You should fit about 16 cookies on each sheet. Bake until golden, turning halfway through baking, about 12 minutes. Let cool 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
