    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup white sugar

    1 cup coconut (unsweetened)
    3 cups oatmeal
    2 cups flour (unbleached all purpose)

    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 cup chopped nuts

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat eggs in mixing bowl, add sugars and shortening. Mix well. Add coconut, nuts, and vanilla. Sift together the flour, salt, soda and baking powder.
