This recipe is derived from the Nestle Toll House Oatmeal Scotchies.  It is basically the same as on the package so I take no real credit for the recipe.  The changes are the coconut oil, brown sugar and baking powder content which is just my preference.  The original recipe is really good but I like the coconut oil along with brown sugar for an extra added crisp.  
On the package it notes to bake a couple of minutes longer for a crisper cookie, however my oven would burn them with that extra time using this recipe.  So again, watch your bake.  I found that when I sub’d the coconut oil they baked a minute or so faster.  Just watch your timing as I always recommend.
Just remember, coconut oil is not butter and does not have the taste of butter.  However, the result in using coconut oil was really tasty and this is a good recipe for those who can’t have butter.
