Preheat your oven to 175 celcius or 350 farenheit. Add all the ingredients apart from the baking powder, desiccated coconut, flour and chocolate chips/chunks to a bowl and mix well.
You can warm up the coconut oil a bit if its to solid but all the stirring will also get it quite liquid depending on your climate and temperature.
Once everything's mixed add the baking powder and desiccated coconut and mix again. Now add the flour and mix it in, but don't over mix. Now that is done you can fold in the chocolate chips or chunks and the cookie dough is done.
