  • Don’t preheat oven yet — dough needs to chill. Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and both sugars, then beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in oil and applesauce. Add flour mixture and stir until it is almost fully incorporated, then stir in the bran flakes, oatmeal, pecans and chocolate chips. Continue stirring until flour disappears.
  • Chill dough for at least an hour – it will get very firm and almost crumbly.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. When ready to bake, scoop up with a spoon and form into golf ball size mounds. Space 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets and press the dough mounds down slightly to make round discs. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Baking them longer should make them a bit crunchier.

Notes

I found this recipe when searching for something yummy to use up the oddly large amount of bran flakes sitting in our pantry. The original recipe actually called for corn flakes, but I used bran flakes with great results. Original recipe called for 1 cup of oil instead 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce. I've even tried it with 1 cup applesauce and no oil, with pretty good results. Make sure you FIRST measure cereal and then mashed it up, or the cookies will be dry (I know this from experience). Overall I really love this recipe, and even though they have oatmeal AND bran flakes my whole family eats them up quick.
