Made these delicious cookies from the "Cooking Light" magazine i am obsessed with "renting" from the library.
Try em, you won't regret it.

Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

4.5 ounces all purpose flour (about 1 cup)
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1/4 cup finely chopped dark chocolate
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir with a wisk.

Place sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 2 min). Add egg, beating well. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; stir just until combined. Stir in coconut and chocolate.

Scrape dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 24 portions. Roll each portion into a ball. Place 12 balls on each of 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray; flatten slightly with the heel of your hand. Bake, 1 sheet at a time at 350 for 15minutes or until the tops are set and cookies are lightly browned on the bottoms. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.

On that last part i didnt roll the dough on a floured surface and all that crap i just spooned em on the cookie sheet. It worked just fine.
