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
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.
