About this recipe: I hail from the Bicol province in the Philippines where people love to eat everything with coconut milk or chilli. I haven't experimented putting chilli into cookies yet but I've done a lot with coconut. Here's my coconut oatmeal cookies.

  • 315g softened butter or margarine
  • 125g brown soft sugar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 150g desiccated coconut
  • 375g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 200g rolled oats
