Oatmeal coconut cookies

Natasha asked for these cookies a few weeks ago, oatmeal coconut, the kind your mom would have made if she made them.  I couldn't find a recipe that was exactly what I wanted, so I adapted and I need to put it here before I forget!  So there you go Tash, now you can make them too.

Oatmeal coconut cookies

3 c old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup of butter
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup coconut
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Combine dry ingredients (oats, flour, soda, powder and salt) together in a medium sized bowl.
In a large bowl (by hand!) combine butter and sugars and vanilla.  Stir until well combined.  Add eggs and mix.
Stir in the flour a bit at a time (to avoid a mess) then add coconut.
Drop onto cookie sheet lined with silpat or parchment in large tsp full.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and center isn’t wiggly or to wet anymore.  Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and move to cooling rack.  Keep dough refridgerated between baking.
