This is a really old recipe I found on a tattered recipe card stuck inside an old cookbook. I think it originally came from my mother's Joy Cookbook (that would be circa 1950).
In the picture they are a bit more done than I would like - But they taste great! They keep cooking a bit after you take them from the oven, so don't leave them on the pan - take the foil off immediately and place it on a cooling rack.

3 large
eggs
2 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
melted butter
3/4 tsp

1 c
shredded coconut
2 c
uncooked rolled oats

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with foil or baking parchment.
2Beat the eggs, then add the sugar gradually, beating constantly. (Electric mixer is best for this.)
3At low speed, stir in the melted butter, vanilla, salt, coconut, and oats.
