I am SO glad that I reduced the sugar, as others suggested!!! I used 1c brown sugar and 1/4c white sugar--next time, I'll just leave out the white sugar entirely. I'll also reduce the oil to 1/2c and add 1/2c unsweetened applesauce & see how that works. I added 2t cinnamon, next time it'll be a full tablespoon--plus 3/4c raisins, but no coconut on hand. Thanks to a review, I toasted the oatmeal first and I really do think that enhanced the flavor. I also added juice from 1/2 lemon, in order to activate that baking soda a bit more, and it worked! They did NOT flatten all that much. In my oven, 11 minutes gave me cookies that are crispy around the edges and chewy in the middle--I like the texture.
