Copy Cat McDonald's Oatmeal Cookies

My hubby is addicted to the McDonald's oatmeal cookies.  Well I hate the place, but I secretly do go there and get McRib's, hangs head in shame, and wanted to come up with a healthier, if that is even possible, recipe.  Here is my attempt and Sean says they are just like the other one's.

Needed:
1 cup butter-room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla 
1 1/2 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t  cinnamon
1 t salt
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup raisins-plumped
1 cup toffee bits

1 cup of coconut


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon (and salt); stir into the creamed mixture. Blend in the oatmeal and toffee bits. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
