German Chocolate Cookies
Ingredients
  • 1/4  cup  butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  egg
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 2/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2/3  cup  regular rolled oats
  • 1/4  cup  flaxseed meal
  • 1/4  cup  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3  ounces  special dark baking chocolate or sweet baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3  cup  flaked coconut
  • 1/3  cup  chopped pecans, toasted
  •  Chopped pecans (optional)
  •  Flaked coconut (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour, the oats, flaxseed meal, and cocoa powder. Stir in chopped chocolate, the 1/3 cup coconut, and the 1/3 cup pecans (dough will be thick).

2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. If desired, sprinkle tops with additional chopped pecans and flaked coconut. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are just firm and tops are set. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.
