Coconut Biscuits – Indulging the healthy and vegan way

I am a little cookie monster and with these chewy coconut biscuits it’s hard not to eat the whole batch at once. I keep them in a closed cookie jar or plastic box on my kitchen counter for maximum a week but there is no way to not finish them before. I am obsessed with coconut in any way so this recipe is just perfect for me. Are you also crazy about coconut? They are amazing for the afternoon cravings and while others are eating processed sweets I can indulge in these little pieces of heaven without feeling guilty!

Cooks in 15 Minutes
Difficulty Easy

INGREDIENTS

130 gr wholegrain spelt flour
¼ tsp Natron
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp vanilla powder
160 gr coconut, shredded
65 ml coconut milk
135 gr coconut sugar
65 gr coconut oil
1 tsp flaxseeds, grounded

Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 180 ˚. Place the wholegrain spelt flour, natron, salt ,shredded coconut and vanilla powder in a bowl and stir well.

In a separate bowl, mix the coconut milk, coconut sugar, coconut oil and flaxseeds. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine everything well until dough forms.

Wet your hands and use 1 tbsp of dough to form a little ball. Place all the balls on a baking sheet and use a fork to flatten them out a little. Bake the cookies for 8-10 min until they just turned golden, no longer!

    Natron….I’ve never heard of it. I just Googled it…and I am wondering who would carry it, is there a substitution for it if I can’t find it, and what is its purpose in this recipe? I don’t imagine it is to start the mummification process….lol. That seemed to be a constant definition for Natron on Google.

    Thanks for this! I’m gluten free – is there a flour you recommend to substitute for spelt? I’m thinking either coconut, almond or sorghum?

      Hi Jo,

      Any other flour will make the cookie turn out different. I have tried it with rice flour. It makes the cookie crumble easier but it’s actually also really tasty :).
      You could also try almond flour.
