Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies


Kids are going back to school this week. So who are feeling low? Me…definetly. No matter how long my kids started going to school ( my little one is just in Kinder and elder in Third), I still feel crying on the first day of school. I just want to keep them home.I still remember how my elder one cried when I dropped her in Pre k.  My little one is already so eager to go to school. I’m sure he will cope with the new wake up time and will make new friends.

So as a Mom my job is to give them healthy and same time, kid approved Lunch and snack. For lunch I usually give them Carrot ChapathiPalak ChapathiCilantro ChapathiAloo ParathaSooji Upma. And for snacks I give them some crackers, Whole Wheat Butter Cookies. I already made a big batch of Cake Rusk for my son to have along with morning milk. To add in that list, I made these Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies . This became an instant hit with my kids. They were asking for more. It have a perfect coconut flavor and the crunch. It’s crispy outside and soft chewy inside. The best part is no rolling, no cooling time. Just drop it and bake it.

How did I make Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies

When I was looking for some snack options as kids school days started, I bumped into this site. When I saw Coconut, I didn’t think much as we all love Coconut a lot. I do have lots of coconut related snacks like Alle BelleMagic Cookie BarsCoconut filled Mango Crepes. But I want something they can take to school without getting ooey gooey. When I made this for the first time, I now that this is the best as it had all the original flavors of coconut.

The original recipe used All purpose Flour and Sweetened Coconut flakes. But in my recipe I used Whole Wheat flour and Frozen Coconut. I just thawed it before adding it to the batter.I loved the fact that Coconut Oil is used instead of butter. It truly enhance the flavor of the cookies. I added Chocolate chips in this recipe but next time I think I will avoid. But you can still add if you like it.I love to add fresh grated coconut next time though I liked the frozen coconut too. Bake for your desired crispness.I used this baking tray which I love the most. It’s so easy to clean and the baked dishes doesn’t stick to it.It stays good for more than a week in room temperature if stored in air tight container.
