This is a recipe from my mom, who is my greatest source of fabulous recipes!  (thanks Mom!) I grew up with Forest Ranger cookies and now these sweet and chewy cookies are in my cookie making rotation for my own family.  They’re loaded with oats, coconut and cornflakes making them a nice change from the usual chocolate chip cookie.  I also love this recipe because it makes a huge batch (4 dozen), so you can have some now and freeze the rest for later!

  • I always bake my cookies on the lower end of time (9-10 minutes), because we like them soft and chewy!
  • For a little extra nutrition, you can substitute in some whole wheat flour:  1/2 cup whole wheat, 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour.  Or just play with the ratios until you get the flavour balance you like!
  • These cookies freeze beautifully.  I keep a small batch out for lunches, then freeze a batch to enjoy later.
