Cowboy/Cowgirl Cookies :)

I stumbled upon this little recipe and tweaked it a little to make it my own :)
you will need:
2 sticks of real butter
3/4 c of packed brown sugar AND white sugar
2 eggs
1tbsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda and salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2cups oats either quick cook or old fashion(I use old fashion for nutritional value)
1 1/2 c choc chips
2/3 c sunflower seeds
2/3 coconut

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Beat shortening and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder; mix well. Add oats, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds and coconut; mix well.
Warning this is a super stiff cookie dough!! A good workout for the upper arms!! ;)

2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets; flatten slightly.

3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
I found for my oven 11min was perfect for chewy soft cookies!

Hope you like them!!! Enjoy!!
