Cowboy Cookies

These Cowboy cookies taste like they came out of a fancy bakery! It’s thick, smooth, and full of nuts!

They say cowboy cookies originated in the 1800s and were a popular treat for cowboys when they were on the road, much like an old-fashioned energy bar.

Now, there is no evidence that this is true in any way. After all, the chocolate chip cookie itself wasn’t invented until 1938. Cowboy cookies are still a delicious treat.
This recipe takes cookie dough with a bakery theme and adds chocolate chips, oats, chopped nuts, and coconut flakes. Be warned, these cookies are very addictive and it’s hard to eat just one.
