Pre-heat the oven to 190C/gas mark 5.
Prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment or greaseproof paper.
Cream the spread and sugar together in a bowl or mixer.
Beat in the vanilla extract and aquafaba.
Sift the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into the mixture and add a pinch of salt.
Stir until well combined.
Gently stir in the coconut and cherries.
Use a small ice-cream scoop or tablespoon to put the dough in mounds onto the baking trays.
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until golden brown.
Leave to cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes before carefully transferring them onto wire racks to cool completely.
