Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I decided that these are actually healthy cookies.  I changed the recipe and made some substitutions that make me feel a little less guilty about eating them.  I used Eggbeaters instead of the egg and whole wheat pastry flour instead of the all purpose flour.  Also, I used a stick of I Can't Believe it's Not Butter instead of real butter. I found the recipe on The Ungourmet

Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

recipe from The Ungourmet

makes about 2 dozen

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups rolled oats

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and coconut. Beat butter for 30 seconds until creamy. Add the egg, extracts, and sugar. Mix well. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix well. Fold in the chips and oats.

Place tbsp sized scoops on baking sheet. Press down each scoop just a bit. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
