Healthy Cookie Recipe

Easy healthy cookie recipe with all good ingredients! No white flour, no sugar, no eggs or butter, yet delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated fresh coconut
  • 1 cup peanuts coarsely ground
  • 1 tbsp sesame butter or peanut butter (optional)
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ½ cup date paste
  • enough whole wheat flour to make the dough a rollable consistency

Method

Knead all the ingredients into a dough adding wheat flour as required to make the dough. Taste for sweetness, and add more date paste if required. Roll into ½ inch balls, flatten and put on a baking tray. No greasing of the tray is required. Place in an oven at 250 degrees F. Turn over when lightly brown and bake the other side. Allow them to cool, and enjoy.

Variations

Because of the natural oils in the coconut, peanuts and the sesame/peanut butter, no refined fats are required and there is no need to grease the tray. All the ingredients are healthy, and the recipe is quite flexible – i.e. you can replace the peanuts with cashews or the raisins with date pieces or cranberries. Sesame seeds (high in calcium) can be added for taste too. Desiccated coconut can be used in place of fresh coconut and wheat flour can be replaced by ragi or other grain flours. Whatever you do it usually comes out well and is very quick to make.
