My healthy coconut cookies recipe
Today I am sharing something that I have mentioned several times and that many of you have asked me for: the recipe for the cookies I make for my daughters.
Cookies are a classic, a really mouth-watering snack for children and, what’s more, the ones I am showing you today are really easy to make. By choosing healthy and nutrient-filled ingredients, these cookies please everyone. As a mother, I know that I am feeding my daughters well, and they are enjoying something sweet and rich that they love. Coconut cookies are a favourite in our house.
The main ingredient in these nutritious biscuits is oats, a cereal that is very rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre. Remember that a wholemeal cereal is a carbohydrate that keeps all its fibre and that will provide you with energy for more hours than a refined version. Instead of butter, we will use coconut oil; the egg is a good source of protein, and as a sweetener we will use coconut sugar, a great alternative to white sugar, as I’ve told you. I also add coconut chips for those coconut-fans who want to find pieces of the tropical fruit in each bite.
I N G R E D I E N T S
– 1/2 cup of extra virgin coconut oil (you can melt it in a bain-marie)
– 1/2 cup of coconut sugar
– 1 egg
– 2 cups of oat flakes
– 1 ½ cups of coconut flakes
*The size of the cup can vary as long as you follow the proportions.
P R E P A R A T I O N
1 | Preheat the oven to 160ºC.
2 | Pour the ingredients into a bowl and mix until obtaining a smooth mixture. Children love mixing the ingredients with their hands.
3 | Using a spoon, place small portions of the mixture on a tray covered with greaseproof paper. I use an ice-cream scoop to make small balls and then flatten them on the tray.
4 | Bake for 12 minutes at 160ºC.
5 | Allow to cool before eating.
My daughters love cooking, especially these cookies that they adore.
