Chewy, Nutty, Coconut, Oatmeal cookies

These cookies are super yummy.  Sometimes I'm in the mood for a cookie without chocolate chips in it.  The texture of this cookie gets its chewiness from coconut and oatmeal.  The nuts and brown sugar are what make this cookie taste rich.  You can use whatever nuts you have on hand.  I had bought a huge bag of pecans from Costco, so that's what I put into my cookies.  You could also leave the nuts out of it, and it still would taste wonderful.

Chewy, Nutty, Coconut, Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 c sugar
1/2 brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 c butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 c shredded coconut
1/2 c quick oats
1/2 c finely chopped nuts (i used my food processor)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine sugars and butter.  Add egg and vanilla and mix well.  Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Mix until combined.  Add oats, coconut, and nuts until combined. Bake for 7-10minutes.  Do not over cook, should just barely start to turn golden on the edges.

These are really good! The coconut is subtle and pairs perfectly with the oats to make a simple and delicious cookie.
