Chocolate chip oatmeal cranberry cookies!

I whipped these cookies up the other day for a work potluck. I'm a pretty horrible baker and I can pull these off! 

What you need: 
1/2 cup butter 
1/2 cup brown sugar (I would recommend 1/4 cup if you do not like your cookies too sweet)
1 egg 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour 
1 cup oatmeal 
1 tsp baking soda 
1 cup dried cranberries/raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut (optional)

How to: 
1. In a medium bowl combine your flour and baking soda 
2. In a large bowl, cream your butter and brown sugar until fluffy 
3. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix together 
4. Slowly add your flour mixture into the large bowl 
5. Add oatmeal and mix 
6. Fold in chocolate chips, cranberries and coconut
7. Bake at 350 degrees Celsius for 8-10 minutes 
8. Enjoy!
