Oatmeal Coconut Chewies

Yummy! I love oats and coconut - put them together in a cookie and it's delicious! These are so soft, chewy, and buttery and they are definitely a new favorite of mine. If you bake them longer they would be more crunchy, but I prefer the soft chewiness. These are so good!

Oatmeal Coconut Chewies

1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. shredded, sweetened coconut
1 c. quick oats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream together the sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased or lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are set but not overly browned.
