These giant cookies are packed with good things. Ground walnuts, flaxseed, oats, coconut, chocolate chips and M&M's all in a giant soft cookie.
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 ground flaxseed
1/4 cup ground walnuts
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup M&M's (mini or regular)
Preheat oven to 325° F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together margarine, butter, and sugars until very smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, coconut, flaxseed, ground walnuts, and oats; stir into creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. (The M&M's can be mixed in at this point or placed on top of the cookies before baking.)
Use a 1/4 cup measure to drop dough on greased baking sheets.
Place M&M's on top. (If you didn't mix them in the dough.)
Make sure you leave enough room for the cookies to spread out, about 4 to 5 inches.
Bake at 325° F. for 15-17 minutes, until edges are browned. Cool before removing from baking sheets.
