150g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
¼tsp salt
2tbsp oil
125g vegan margarine
100g light brown sugar
100g caster sugar
½ tsp vanilla essence
100g desiccated coconut

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180c/gas mark 4
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, then set aside
  3. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, vanilla essence, brown sugar and caster sugar until light and fluffy
  4. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt mixture
  5. Mix in the coconut
  6. Take small handfuls of dough and shape into biscuits, place them on a lined baking tray, they should be a lot of space between each cookie as they will expand a lot
