Oatmeal Chipper Cookies

This is a recipe that my mom got from a friend of hers while our family was living in Michigan. We decided that it has been in the family since about 1982. That may sound like forever ago to some of you, but the recipe is fabulous and has survived through the years and continues to be a favorite at our house. These are my husbands second favorite cookie, rivaled only by a good chewy oatmeal raisin. Happy baking!

1 1/4 cup oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup chocolate chips (again... I prefer semi-sweet)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbs. milk

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. In a small bowl, wisk together the oil, egg, and vanilla. When your wet ingredients are mixed, pour them into the large bowl and continue to stir until mixed. Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto a well greased cookie sheet. This dough is a little dry and you will need to use your fingers to form the dough into tablespoon sized balls. Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are just starting to brown on the edges.
