Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease baking trays.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, caster sugar, dark brown soft sugar, oats and coconut. Make a well in the centre and pour in the oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix well using your hands or a wooden spoon. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place 5cm apart onto the prepared trays. Flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, cookies should be a very light brown and chewy - not crisp. Cool for a couple of minutes on the baking trays before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
How much sugar!! Blimey.
So I didn't want us to have a sugar high so I tweaked the recipe. I left out the caster sugar. I put in a tablespoon of honey to help bind it and about 100g of descicated coconut. I also added some raisings because my little girl loves them. I used rapeseed oil rather than sunflower oil as it was what I've got in the cupboard. They where delicious. Probably not as chewy as the original recipe!! - 17 May 2015
