Oatmeal-coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies...

I needed to get some fridge space the other day so my (manipulating) sweet little children said; "If you will bake us lots of cookies, we will drink lots of milk!" Aren't they sweet to want to help me that way?!!?!
This is another recipe taken from More With Less. This is based on Oatmeal Cookies with a Purpose, but when I make them just like the recipe, they come out a little salty for some reason, so here's my spin on it:
3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2c rolled oats
3/4 c dry milk
1/2 c water
Blend well and add;
1/4 t salt
2 t baking powder
2 1/2 c unbleached flour
1/2 cup chipped coconut
1/2 to 3/4 c chocolate chips
Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 325 for approx. 10 minutes.
Cool one minute before removing from pan.
*may also add 1/2 to 3/4 c chopped nuts/pecans
