Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
Courtesy of Cooking Light - September 2008 issue
Yield 2 dozen cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1/4 cup finely chopped dark chocolate (I might use semi-sweet here, but use what you like)
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup, level with knife. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir with a whisk.

Place sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. (About 2 minutes) Add egg, beating well. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate and coconut.

Scrap dough onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 24 portions. Roll each portion into a ball. Place 12 balls on each of 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray; flatten slightly with the heel of your hand.

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, at 350 for 15 minutes or until the tops are set and the cookies are lightly browned on the bottoms. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
