Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies (Eggless)

Hello to all the readers !! These days I am on baking spree & trying different cookies' recipe. Today I am going to share Eggless version of Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies recipe. These coconut cookies  are delicious in taste & easy to make too.

The warm buttery sweet aroma of the cookies filling the kitchen brings a shear smile on everyone's face at home. I thought of trying some healthier version of cookies. Of course you cannot minus the butter and sugar from the cookies, but at least replace "Maida" (or All Purpose Flour) by "Whole Wheat Flour" making it more fibrous and less fattening. It earns some more "cookie points" when combined with one other healthy ingredient-Coconut.

You can have these in your breakfast with glass of milk or even give these to your kids in tiffin as snack. It is a perfect accompaniment to your hot cup of Masala Chai or Coffee in evenings.

List Of Ingredients: (Makes 6 medium sized cookies)

  • Whole Wheat Flour-1/2 cup
  • Desiccated Coconut powder-1/4 cup
  • Unsalted Butter-1/4 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Baking Powder- 1/8 tsp
  • Salt- A pinch
  • Milk-1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp

Steps To Prepare:

Sieve the flour and salt together. Add 1/4 cup desiccated coconut powder to it and mix well. Keep it aside.
Bring the butter to the room temperature. Whisk it well with sugar till it is light or fluffy and soft peaks are formed. 
Add the dry ingredients (in step1) to the whisked butter and sugar. Start binding the ingredients together using hands or spatula. Add milk little by little. Please do not knead it or overmix it as it can lead to gluten formation.
Keep this cookie dough in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
In the meantime, set the microwave oven for preheating at 150 degree celsius in convection mode. Also, line the baking tray with a foil paper.
Bring the dough out of refrigerator. Make small balls out of it and press it gently giving it the shape of cookie. Roll it in some more desiccated coconut. Place it on the baking tray. Don't keep the cookies too close to each other.
Bake these cookies at 150 degrees celsius for 20 min. Once the cookies are baked, bring them out of the oven and let them cool for sometime on a wire rack.
Yummy-licious, Crunchy Coconut Cookies are ready!! :)
