In a large bowl Cream together about one cup shortening or unsalted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, one teaspoon vanilla extract, and salt with a mixer until fluffy. Add in your large eggs and mix until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula every couple of minutes to ensure everything has been mixed together completely.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda and give it a whisk. Add the flour mixture into the butter and sugar mixture and beat until combined. Turn off the mixer and stir in the rolled oats, semi-sweet chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and Rice Krispies or corn flakes until just combined.
Using a cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Once done baking, allow to cool right on the baking sheet for only five minutes or less and then transfer to a cooling rack so the cookies can cool completely.
