All ingredients should be allowed to come to room temperature if they have been in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Mix together the salt, baking powder, and flour. When oven is hot, place the coconut on a cookie sheet and toast until lightly browned for 2 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Blend the butter and brown sugar. Add the beaten egg bit by bit, mixing well. Add vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture. Mix well with wooden spoon. Gently stir in the chocolate chips and the toasted coconut.

Lightly grease (or butter) and flour a 9- x 13-inch cake pan. Spread the batter into the pan. Bake at 350 °F for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven as soon as a sharp knife inserted into the center pulls away clean. Cool, cut into bars (or squares) and serve.
