      Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in the oats, brown sugar, coconut, and chocolate chips. Stir together the melted butter, egg, and vanilla, then add to the flour mixture and stir just until blended. Avoid mixing more than needed. Transfer to the prepared pan and level the surface.

      Bake until slightly risen, golden, and just firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Put the tin on a rack and let cool before cutting into triangular or rectangular bars or squares.
