Chocolate Chip Coconut Oatmeal Bars

I don't usually add chocolate chips to my oatmeal cookies. I usually like either chocolate chip cookies, or oatmeal cookies...not combined. Not that I wouldn't eat them(there's few sweets if any that I ever turn down!)it's just not my preference. For whatever reason I've been on a coconut kick and I decided to make some oatmeal cookie bars using coconut and chocolate chips. They did in fact turn out really good! I just used my usual oatmeal cookie recipe with a few additions. Enjoy!

1 cup butter, softened(I like using salted for these)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 &1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 &1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats(quick or regular)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup coconut

Mix eggs, sugars, butter and vanilla in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Combine wet and dry ingredients together. Stir in oats 1 cup at a time. Fold in chocolate chips and coconut. Pour into a lightly greased 9X13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

Made these a while ago and were super tasty and a hit! I want to try to make them vegan for work party (have vegan coworker). Any ideas on what to substitute for egg?
