Recipe: coconut biscuits

One thing you should know about my cooking and baking is that I don’t like making recipes that take too long. I get bored and usually mess things up with my impatience (hello, undercooking! hi, overcooking!) So, these coconut biscuits are quick and easy to make, just the way I like it. They’re actually adapted from a recipe for basic biscuit dough. It would be a good idea to make them in the evening and eat them for breakfast!

Coconut biscuits
Yields 12
  1. 100g butter, very soft
  2. 6 tbsp fructose or 10 tbsp sugar
  3. 50g coconut shavings
  4. 1 egg
  5. about 2 cups flour
  6. 1 tsp baking powder
  7. 2-3 tbsp milk
  8. 2-3 tsp cocoa powder
  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C. In a bowl, mix the butter with the sugar and the coconut. Once it gets more or less homogeneous, mix in the egg. Sift the flour until you get a rough dough, add the baking powder and the milk. Feel free to add more coconut if you like.
  2. Line a flat oven tray with baking paper, and make dough balls with your hand, placing them on the tray. When you’ve used about half of the dough, mix the cocoa with the rest of it, to make a few chocolatey biscuits, too.
  3. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  1. Since these biscuits aren’t super sweet, dip them in Nutella or jelly – I used honey, cause that’s what I had at hand, and they tasted delicious!
