My healthy coconut cookies recipe

28 JUNE 2017

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.

With this cookie recipe I am practising the theory that I mentioned to you in the videos about good fats and sugars, transferring good food habits to something as easy and delicious as cookies.

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
15 cookies

– 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
15 minutes

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.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE EAT SUGAR
When we talk about table sugar, or sucrose, which is the same thing, we are referring to white sugar, an empty-calorie food. What happens when we eat it?
