125g brown soft sugar
100g caster sugar
150g desiccated coconut

Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease some baking trays, or use nonstick trays.
Beat together butter or margarine and sugars using mixer on a low level in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a smaller bowl. Add flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and blend well. Stir in oats and coconut.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking trays. Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a chewy cookie or 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie.
Cool 1 minute on baking tray, then remove to wire rack. Cool completely and store in tightly covered container.
