Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies | Eggless Wheat Coconut Cookies | Eggless Whole Wheat Cookies Recipe

Eggless Wheat Coconut Cookies
We completely stopped buying breads, cookies, crackers from store and rarely fresh breads from bakery. But my kids love breads and cookies a lot, they love bread in any form, simple toast to sandwich, upma anything. Breads are there most favorite food but because of the preservative ingredient we do not buy breads, cookies. So once in 10 days or 2 weeks once I bake it at home. Anything that is homemade is always fresh, good and free from preservatives. And that too our favorite cookies/cake or bread with some healthy ingredients means that is most welcome right? This Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies is one such recipe, delicious and melt in mouth flavorful cookies using whole wheat flour without eggs and less sugar when compared to other cookies. I bookmarked this recipe from Hari Chandana's blog, have tried this Wheat Coconut Cookies couple of times and now it is our family's favorite cookies. This wheat cookies does not involve more fancy ingredients, no egg and just the basic ingredients. It can be made without coconut also for a plain vanilla flavored cookies. This is sure a keeper recipe, do try this cookies for your kids. These are best to serve along with hot chai or coffee for tea time snack.

Eggless Coconut Cookies Recipe
Recipe Source : Blend With Spices
Prep Time : 10 minutes | Cook Time : 18 minutes
Recipe Category : Snack
Makes : 20-22 cookies
Whole Wheat Coconut CookiesIngredients
  1. Whole Wheat Flour   1 cup(I used Nature's Fresh Whole Wheat Atta)
  2. Sugar   1/2 cup*
  3. Unsweetened Dessicated Coconut   1/4 cup+2 tbsp for garnish
  4. Butter, softened   1/2 cup
  5. Salt a pinch
  6. Vanilla Extract   1/2 tsp
  7. Milk   2 tbsp or as nedded
Method
  • Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or silicon mat.
  • Grind sugar into a fine powder and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add butter and powdered sugar and beat until light and creamy. Add vanilla, salt and combine.
  • Now add the wheat flour and dessicated coconut and mix everything well.
  • Then add milk little by little and mix well to make a smooth and soft dough.
  • And then divide the cookie dough into 20-22 small balls and then take one ball and shape into a smooth ball and flatten it(like we do for Pedas)
  • Now dip the top of the flattened cookie dough in coconut and arrange it in a parchment lined baking tray.
  • Do repeat the same for all dough and place them on a baking tray spacing about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake the cookies in preheat oven for 18 minutes.
  • Once done remove from the oven and let it cool down for 2-3 minutes.
  • Cookies will be very soft now but it turns crisp and crunchy after cooling.
  • After 3 minutes transfer the cookies to the wired rack and let it cool down competely.
  • Store the cookies in an air tight container.
Notes:
*sugar - 1/2 cup, I reduced 2-3 tbsp sugar from 1/2 cup and that sweetness was perfect to us.
If you are sweet tooth then add 1/2 cup sugar for mild sweet reduce sugar 1-2 tbsp from 1/2 cup.
The original recipe did not say to refrigerate the dough before baking...but I refrigerated the
cookie dough for 10 minutes.
As the dough was very soft and buttery, I don't want my cookies to spread so to be on safer side I refrigerated the dough.
The chilled dough holded the shape well.
You can also skip coconut and bake it as a plain Vanilla cookies.

  10. Just made these and they are marvelous.... So yummy, crunchy and hardly any time taking. Love that they are whole wheat and simple ingredients. The only things did different is add fresh coconut instead of dessicated one. They turned out beautifully. Will do them again and again

  13. Hi!
    Made these yesterday with my friend. We use old cooker to make cookies. I added fresh coconut instead of desiccated coconut. When I mixed the dough I felt the dough to be loose and can't quite form into a ball and then it flattened out while baking. Then I refrigerated it and made the second batch n tat too flattened out. Don't know wy. But cookies tasted delicious with taste in between coconut burfi and cookies.

  14. Just tried out the cookie. Followed exact recipe. But my cookie got burnt in the bottom and not cooked from inside. I used the parchment too. What am I doing wrong? It happens with any baking I do, things get burnt from bottom n remains 25% uncooked inside. I am using Morphy Richards OTG. Any tips? Help!

    1. Next time try to bake it in lower temperature, say 320 or 300 F for little extra time,3-4 minutes extra.. Use good quality cookie sheet for baking.

  21. Hi Sangeetha, I made these today. They didn't turn out crispy. I am amazed at how crispier your cookies turned out without adding baking powder. My dough was little bit dry- Should it be lot softer ? - I refrigerated it overnight. I also added little yogurt in the dough. I didn't use parchment paper. I cooked a little bit longer than you suggested - It didn't apparently like yours. Where did I go wrong ?Please let me know . Thanks!

    1. Yes.,the cookies was crispy like Indian biscuits. It wasn't like soft/chewy cookies. Yes.,the dough was soft and Refrigeration is not required and it is not mentioned in the original recipe too...i just kept it only for 10 minutes...no need to do over night. It is good to use parchment paper for baking cookies. No need to add yogurt..try the recipe with exact measurement and method. It will come out good.
