Hawaiian Drop Cookies

Friday night we had a church party to attend. I brought these cookies that I use to make all the time (sorry...there's no picture...I forgot to take one before we left the house.)

¾ cup butter or margarine, softened
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups oats, uncooked
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 ¾ cups M & M’s
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy; beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine oats, flour, baking powder, and baking soda; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake 13-15 minutes.
