Coconut Almond Cookies

By: Prasanna| Published: 9:58:00 PM

Delicious Coconut Almond cookies are perfect for snacks and kids will love them asking for more!

Baking was on my mind for some days and its been almost 3 months that I have baked anything I guess! 
I used to love the coconut cookies which we got in a nearby bakery but for some reasons I was not able to get them.There was a mismatch in my timings and bakery timings.It happened twice that I went to the store to buy cookies and some other goodies and it was closed. Finally I made up my mind that no matter what I will make my favorite cookies again.
I usually have so many things on my hands for the day that fitting everything in a day's time is just impossible.
I started my day yesterday,thinking that I will bake these cookies by morning so that I will get plenty of time to finish rest of my work but as usual these cookies took the least priority and I ended baking them by late afternoon.
But I am still happy as out of all the obstacles(yes! I call them obstacles as when you plan for things and nothing happens as per your schedule,and that too EVER! ,then it's an obstacle) finally I could finally bake these goodies and they were absolutely delish!
My kids were very skeptical before taking a bite but they were sill screaming loudly "wow something smelling awesome" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Here's what you can do to get these cookies right: just mix all the ingredients ( sieve the dough once) and with light hands make a soft dough. Here when I say dough this is not a bread dough.Just use a spoon initially then use hands to mix. You do not need hand or stand mixer,just lightly mix with hands and the dough is ready.
Interesting part is that I have not used eggs or butter or baking soda/baking powder here.But still the cookies are perfect,crispy outside and gooey inside.
I have shared another recipe of cookies on my blog,these are very famous in India/Indian community and they are just perfect melt in mouth cookies "Nankhatai". Try them too.
Using MTR Badam Mix powder is a great alternative the regular Almond powder/Flour for Coconut Almond Cookies. This is readily available on Amazon and in Indian grocery stores.

  • If you do not find  MTR badam Mix or any other Almond flour / powder, then try making homemade almond powder.
  • Adding a little Elaichi powder / Cardamom powder to the dough to give extra flavor.
  • Do not knead the dough. This dough will be very soft.
  • Leave sufficient space in between the dough balls for the cookies to grow or they will stick to each other and loose the shape.
  • Choice is yours to use powdered or granulated sugar.
  • Initially the cookies will be soft,even if they have browned. Let them cool for 5 mins on the baking tray itself.
  • If you try to take the cookies immediate after taking them out of oven then they will break. 
  • Cookies will be soft even after taking them out of oven.After 5 mins of cooling transfer them to cooling rack.
