Oatmeal Coconut Chewies=The BEST EVER!

So I know I get a lot of stuff off of Mel's Kitchen Cafe but we must have very similiar tastes in food because nearly everything she suggests I love. She hasn't steered me wrong yet so I will continue to trust her. She said these were the BEST cookies she has EVER had and I thought that is impossible there isn't even any chocolate in it. Well Oh My they are flippin Awesome. I mean I Love Them, they are the bomb! I don't know how many ways I can say how good they are.
After I made them I froze them and then every day I would take out 2-3 cookies and eat them, over about a month. I rarely let other people share with me, except to try and convert them to the cookies awesomeness. So there you have it, my story please try for yourself and see.

* I always try to use 1/2 the amount of sugar a recipe calls for and it always tastes the same- just an easy way to cut a little sugar out of your diet- idea from "Tip A Day Guide For Healthy Living"

Oatmeal Coconut Chewies

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 versi
