Honey, I’m Coconuts for These Cookies

I’ve played around with this recipe as I had a request from my dear friend Jen to make some healthy cookies. These were the best I could come up with, as I think cookies should still be a bit naughty. Plus my kids are fooled they pass the sweet test! 

Serves: 12 cookies

Over temp: 180 degC/ 350 F/ gas mark 4


50g butter

4 teaspoons honey

5 tablespoons desiccated coconut

2 big tablespoons of peanut butter

10 level tablespoons of self raising flour


Cream the butter and desiccated coconut together with a wooden spoon until well combined. 

Add the egg yolk, peanut butter and honey. Mix all the ingredients together until evenly distributed. 

Spoon in the floor until the mixture is a soft dough.

Break the mixture in half, then the halves into halves again, and make 3 balls out of the halves, in total there will be 12.

Put on a baking tray and then squish down a bit.

Bake in the centre of the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden.

They are so nice warm, but will be a bit crumbly straight out of the oven, so leave to cool.
