HOW TO MAKE WHOLE WHEAT COCONUT COOKIES


WHOLE WHEAT COCONUT COOKIES
Cookies are a favorite among kids. I often make wheat flour cookies at home. These yummy eggless coconut cookies are a treat for Christmas.

Here I have used powdered sugar for making whole wheat coconut cookies. But they can also be made with brown sugar or with cane sugar.

These coconut cookies without eggs are very easy to make and use very few ingredients for preparation namely whole wheat flour, sugar, butter, and coconut. It does not make use of baking powder or baking soda or any such ingredients. This can be considered as a healthy snack recipe.

Creative ways to make sure you would be getting enough fiber and fats.
