1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened flake coconut
1 cup raisins
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar together in a large bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well until each addition. Stir in vanilla.
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add into butter mixture and mix until just blended. Fold in oats, chocolate chips, coconut flakes, raisins, and walnuts.
Use a tablespoon or a 1 ounce ice-cream scoop to drop batter onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Press tops down with the bottom of a glass to flatten cookies evenly.
Bake for about 16 to 18 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. Cool on pan for 2 minutes. Remove from pan, and finish cooling completely on wire rack.
