Chewy coconut cookies

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flaked coconut (divided)

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.

In a large bowl, combine oil, brown sugar, and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then mix in 1 1/2 cups coconut.

Gently roll the dough into balls, each about the size of quarter. Roll the dough balls in the remaining coconut to coat lightly.

Place cookies on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven at 350 degrees, or until lightly toasted.

I would love to make this. You think it's ok to make it fresh grated coconut?
