Oatmeal Coconut Chewies

I usually try to wait until the end of the week to post my recipe of the week, but I can't wait any longer and you need to get the ingredients for this so you can make them this weekend!  I found these on one of my "tasty" recipe blogs down to the right, My Kitchen Cafe.  These are so easy and oh so good!  Here's the recipe:

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened to cool room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
1 cup 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 (silpat or parchment) baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are set but not overly browned (bake a few minutes longer for a crispier version).

Enjoy and let me know what you think!!
