Leftover Oatmeal Cookies

2 C. brown sugar 
1 C. butter 
3 eggs 
2 C. cooked oatmeal 
2 C. all purpose flour 
2 C. white whole wheat (or regular whole wheat) 
[Note: You can use 4 cups of all purpose flour.] 
3 tsp. baking soda 
1 tsp. salt 
3 tsp. vanilla 
3 C. chocolate chips 
1 C. coconut 
1 C. raisins
Cream sugar, butter, eggs and cooked oatmeal.  Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt; then the coconut, chocolate chips and raisins.  Scoop onto baking sheets by tablespoonsful about 1 – 1 1/2 inches apart and flatten slightly. Bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are set and starting to brown slightly.  Allow to cool on baking sheet about 5 minutes before removing to racks.
(I put mine on parchment, so I had no trouble with them sticking.  I don’t know if the baking sheets need to be greased.  The original recipe said nothing about it, but it was a little short on instructions.)
These cookies freeze well. Recipe from the Cotton Apron
