Becca's German Chocolate Cookies

Friendship Sister and daughter-in-law. Becca gave me this fantastic recipe for German Chocolate Cookies.  Make extra and share them with a me!

1/4 C Butter (softened)
3/4 C Brown Sugar (packed)
1/2 t Salt
1 Egg
1 t Vanilla
2/3 C All-Purpose Flour
2/3 C Rolled Oats
1/4 C Flax Seed Meal
1/4 C Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3 oz. Dark or Sweet Baking Chocolate (chopped)
1/3 C Flaked Coconut optional
1/3 C Pecans (toasted) optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer, medium to high speed for 30 seconds.  Add brown sugar, baking soda and salt.  Beat until well combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.  Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.  Beat in flour.  Stir in rolled oats, flax seed meal and cocoa powder.  Stir in chopped chocolate, coconut and pecans.  Dough will be thick.

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 rack to cool.

Makes about 3 dozen
