Coconut Cookies

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

This recipe is definitely for the coconut lovers. A quick recipe that is easy to prepare and only takes 10-15 minutes in the oven depending on how golden you would like them to be. I also thought these would make a really nice homemade gift for friends or family members. Whilst we are still in somewhat of a lockdown and we can’t see people as freely as we would like, why not bake some cookies and post them to loved ones. The recipe makes quite a lot depending on how big/small you want them to be and they will keep for a few days in an air tight container.

These cookies are great to make with kids because the recipe is simple and a perfect treat with a cup of tea! Also, the desiccated coconut is a great source of fibre.

Recipe: Coconut cookies (makes 28)


110g butter

130g caster sugar

1 egg

100g desiccated coconut

170g self-raising flour


  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line two trays with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and the sugar together until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the egg, mixing well. Then stir in the desiccated coconut and flour.
  • Mix well to combine everything together.
  • The mixture will be quite soft so use a tablespoon to scoop out small balls and place on the tray.
