I told you I got my hands on a new “healthy and sweet” cookbook for easy family recipes – so I’m sharing the knowledge. The author is called Avigaïl Meizelik and this week we want to present to you: the Coconut Cookies (or Coco Cookies for short)!
Super easy to make and downright delicious…
I modified the recipe “a little” according to what I had at home so I give you my version:
- 250 gr of coconut powder – I used a lot more because the final mixture was much too liquid for my taste.
- 1 cup unsweetened apple concentrate (recipe called for 2 1/4 cups coconut sugar, but I haven’t found any yet)
- 2 spoons of coconut oil. I had to melt the one I had seen the cold, it does not remain liquid in the cupboards! We could also have taken walnut oil.
- 5 eggs – I put 4.
So we put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and place the mixture with a spoon or fork on waxed paper in the oven. After a few minutes (at about 180 degrees) you can already turn the biscuits aside, so that they are golden not just in front but in the back too. After another ten minutes they are ready. When they are ready, either eat them or freeze them!
Here is the result:
A note on coconut sugar
The original recipe called for coconut sugar. Now what is that?
Coconut sugar comes from the coconut blossom. Sounds cute, but does it make it healthy?
Compared to refined sugar, which provides empty calories, coconut sugar contains vitamins and minerals, including polyphenols, potassium in significant amounts, according to analyzes carried out in the Philippines.
It also contains a form of prebiotic called inulin, which is beneficial for the intestinal flora. Sounds smart, but does it make it healthy?
