I cannot remember where I came across this recipe, but it’s really one of my favorites.
There are so many delicious flavors happening, the cranberries, the oats, the pecans, and coconut!
If I put in chocolate chips, I might keel over.
I can say, with confidence, that pecans are now my number one favorite nut.
Isn’t that exciting?
Before the oven:
And here is the recipe:

2 cups cranberries (or any dried fruit)
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sweetened coconut
Whisk together your dry ingredients, set aside.
Cream butter and sugars together.
After thoroughly combined, slowly add 1 egg/vanilla at a time.
After incorporated, gradually add dry mixture.

Mix until all blended.
Pop into a 350 oven for 18-20 minutes (depending on size), rotating halfway through.
