This recipe has everything you need in a cookie. It is –

- Easy to make
- Uses ingredients that are readily available
- Super crispy and crunchy
- and is well balanced, with just the right amount of sweetness!
What more can you ask for in a cookie? It’s that gooooooood!!
Coconut is good!
I love coconut and like to experiment with it. And why not, it’s loaded with right nutrients. Coconut contains
- no cholesterol, or trans fats
- is abundant in some essential nutrients like dietary fiber, manganese, and copper
- 1 ounce of coconut provides 38 grams of dietary fiber.
It’s that good and healthy then why not include it in our diet?
Besides nutrition, it’s easy to store in the refrigerator for months without spoiling and comes in real handy.
How to Make Eggless Cococnut Cookies?
The process of making these eggless coconut cookies is straightforward. Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl and make a soft dough. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to 1 hr. This step is important. Please do not skip this step.
Cookie dough that is chilled before baking –
- will retain their shape much better and
- butter will not melt as soon as the cookies hit the oven.
Whereas, an un-chilled dough will make the cookies to spread causing a distorted shape. So, chilling a cookie dough is a significant step. Shape and bake as directed.
Do give this fantastic cookie recipe a try. Believe me once tasted; you will be driven to make them more often. These Eggless Coconut cookies are a thumbs up for my family.
