1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 F.


Beat all ingredients except oats, flour and raisins in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with a spoon; stir in oats, flour and raisins (chopped nuts, chocolate chips, coconut).


Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.


Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light brown; immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Notes

This is a recipe that I adapted from 'Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook'. The original recipe is actually called 'Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies', but I didn't have any raisins (or chopped nuts or semisweet chocolate chips), but I did have about a cup of flaked coconut, so I decided to use that instead.

OOhhh, I think I would add all of the options! I love a good oatmeal cookie.
