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.

Ingredients

110g butter

130g caster sugar

1 egg

100g desiccated coconut

170g self-raising flour

  • 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.

Mini Oat Raisin Biscuits

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I have previously mentioned about reducing sugar in the things I bake and these biscuits only contain maple syrup and raisins for sweetness. They are quite plain but this make me realise how much added sugar is in processed products. These biscuits are quite dry so they would be perfect for dipping into your tea!!

Recipe: Mini Oat raisin Biscuits (makes 12)

Ingredients

50g oats

50g plain flour

1/2 baking powder

Pinch of cinnamon

20g raisins

20g butter

1 tbsp maple syrup

3 tbsp milk or milk alternative

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter, syrup and 3 tablespoons of milk together, pour into the bowl and mix together until a dough forms.
  • The dough might be a little stiff so you could add a little more milk, otherwise roll out onto a lightly floured surface and use a cutter to cut out the biscuit shapes.
  • Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes and leave to cool on a wire rack before eating.
