Delicious eggless Coconut Cookies made with whole wheat flour & desiccated coconut. These coconut cookies are delicious, healthy, easy to make and perfect to serve with a cup of tea of coffee.
These days I am on baking spree and trying different cookies recipe. The warm buttery sweet aroma of the freshly baked cookies makes the entire home smell heavenly.
I thought of trying some healthier version of eggless coconut cookies. Of course you cannot minus the fat 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 like coconut.
What is desiccated coconut?
The recipe specifically uses desiccated coconut which is basically dried form of coconut in shredded or powder form. It is easily available in grocery stores or amazon these days. Do not confuse it with coconut flour as it is different from desiccated coconut. Some more recipes with desiccated coconut:
You can have these whole wheat coconut cookies 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.

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.

I luv it.
Thank you 🙂
Hi Divya, these look delish…one query though, can we replace the butter with ghee…if yes, then would it be the same quantity
Hi Deepika, Thank you. Yes you can replace butter with ghee. Use the same quantity as butter 🙂
Can we use fresh coconut instead of desiccated
Super easy recipe 👍
Can we use coconut instead of Dessicated coconut powder?
Fresh Coconut has more moisture content whereas desiccated coconut is dry coconut powder. Adding fresh coconut will increase moisture content in cookies thus making them soft. Though I have not tried it but you may try roasting it first and then use in cookies.
Thankyou for the recipe..would like to the shelf life of cookies.
Sorry if I missed out reading.
Hi Harika, These coconut cookies can be stored in an airtight container for upto a week.
