  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda

  8. 2 cups whole wheat flour

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius/375 degrees Farenheit (not fan assisted).

  2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa until well blended.

  3. Add rolled oats and coconut and stir.

  4. In a separate bowl, beat oil, sugar and eggs together and add vanilla essence. Stir.

  5. Add dry ingredients gradually to wet, stirring well, then add choc chips .

  6. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

  7. Put heaped tablespoons of mix on baking sheets lined with parchment. The mix is a bit crumbly to work, but not to worry. Just squish a bit with your fingers if you need to!

  8. Put in oven and bake for 7-12 minutes. They are cooked when slightly cracked on top and a bit more golden in colour.

  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute or two before transferring to a cooling rack.

  10. Wonderful warm from the oven, but just as good packed in lunchboxes or as a gift for that new neighbour!
