Kitchen Sink Cookies

These cookies are a Nelson family favorite! They are chewy, crunchy, and full of goodness. The reason these cookies are called "Kitchen Sink Cookies is because they pretty much have everything but the kitchen sink in them. They use a ton of ingredients, which is great if you are wanting to clean out your pantry, and also great because they are packed full of healthy items as well. I love knowing that my toddler is getting omega 3's through the walnuts, while he feels like he's getting a treat because its in cookie form! 

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter room temp
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups Cornflakes or Branflakes 
1 cup coconut 
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts are great)
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. You want them just barely golden on the outside edge. If you use a cookie scoop, you should get about 45 cookies from this recipe. 

Like I mentioned earlier, these cookies have a lovely chewiness from the coconut, crunchiness from the nuts, sweetness from the chocolate chips. They are a great way to switch up your routine from a regular old chocolate chip option. Enjoy!
