1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup brown packed sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled**
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat softened butter in a bowl, then add both sugars and beat for two minutes. Add egg and beat until creamy.
2. Pour in melted chocolate. (**You can also use cocoa: three tablespoons of cocoa and one tablespoon of butter for every ounce of baking chocolate needed.)
3. Stir in flour, baking powder and baking soda until just combined. Add oats and coconut.
4. Drop slightly rounded teaspoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes and let cool briefly on the pans before removing to a storage container.
