My Sister's Famous Oatmeal Cookies

Sister says she doesn't feel guilty eating these because they have "good for you" ingredients. But she just HAD to add chocolate chips.  LOL.  All things are better with a little chocolate.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup coconut
1 ½ cups finely chopped pecans
½ cup wheat germ
3 ½ cups oatmeal
½ cup coarsely chopped pecans (optional)
½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)

Combine oil and sugars; add eggs, flour, salt, soda, and vanilla. Mix well. Add coconut, pecans, wheat germ and oatmeal to make stiff dough. Add oatmeal gradually so dough isn't too stiff or dry.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. For chewy cookies, bake the minimum time. For crisper cookies, bake the maximum time.
