Coconut, oats and walnut biscuits



These deliciously soft, crumbly cookies are made with coconut oil instead of butter, and also contain shredded coconut, so they are a great way of incorporating coconut into your diet. They provide all the amazing health benefits of coconuts and coconut oil in a mouth watering snack.


These biscuits use half the amount of sugar as conventional biscuits, so they are not as sweet. Instead, the shredded coconut, walnuts, oats and cinnamon provide flavour and a slight sweetness to the biscuits.


This recipe makes about 30 biscuits and each biscuit contains approximately half a tablespoon of coconut oil.


Ingredients:

½ cup unrefined raw cane sugar

¾ cup coconut oil

2 large eggs

½ tsp vanilla extract (most contain alcohol so read ingredient)

1 ½ cups plain flour

1 cup oats

½ cup shredded (dessicated) coconut

½ tsp baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

½ cup walnuts chopped


Preparation:

Mix together the sugar, liquid coconut oil, eggs and vanilla.


In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, shredded coconut, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.


Stir this with the wet mixture. Work quickly before the coconut oil starts to harden so you may need to use your hands.


Fold in the walnuts.

Roll the mixture into 1 ½ inch balls and place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart, flattening the balls slightly.


Bake in a preheated oven, gas mark 5 or 190°C (375°F) for 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.
