Indian style crispy Eggless Coconut Cookies are so good with a cup of chai. You only need 10 minutes to make these!

Eggless Coconut Cookies

This recipe has been in the making for long! I remember the first time I made coconut cookies was probably 3 years back but somehow I didn’t get around posting it and it wasn’t Indian style coconut cookies. I have had few requests from my readers to post recipe for Indian style Eggless Coconut Cookies (or Coconut Biscuits as well call them!) and I am sorry that it took me so long. I have been meaning to make these for months now but anyway better late than never. These are Indian style biscuits, crispy and perfect to be dunk in chai. And you guys know the best part? These are made with atta (durum wheat) so you don’t have to get any fancy flour for these. Just very basic ingredients and some seriously delicious cookies ready in no time!

Eggless Coconut Cookies Recipe

The first thing you need to make these cookies is good quality coconut powder. I had unsweetened coconut flakes from Trader Joe’s. I ran it in my food processor to make a powder of it. You can use a good quality coconut powder right away. And rest of the ingredients are really simple – powdered sugar, butter, some vanilla extract, atta (wheat flour), cardamom powder and my 2 secret ingredients – imitation coconut extract and nutmeg powder. Both these ingredients really add to the flavors, you can skip them but I highly recommend them. Especially I think the nutmeg went so well in these cookies! I hope you guys give these eggless coconut cookies a try and if you do please don’t forget to share a picture with me! I know you guys love all my Indian style cookie recipes so I am hoping you would love these too. ?

Indian style Coconut Cookies

* Atta is Indian Whole Wheat, what we use to make our everyday breads like roti and paratha. In case you can’t find it use white whole wheat flour.

* You may use unsalted butter but in that case make sure to add little, around 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the dough.

    It’s a very good recipe !
    Have you tried to substitute coconut oil fir butter ? What do you think how will it taste?

  4. Hi Manali
    These cookies look fabulous. Your biscuits look as if you’ve garnished them with toasted almonds. If I try that will the almonds burn while baking?

  5. Hello Manali… I am from Mauritius and i was looking for a cookie recipe since long. I just tried yours for Diwali and it turned out great. I just love them.

    Hi Manali,

    I made these cookies. I felt the dough was quite soft. I rolled them into balls and pressed them on the baking tray. The cookies tasted great and were crispy on the first day.after 2 – 3 days they became very soft and started crumbling. Do we need to store them in fridge ?

    1. We need to store them in an airtight container and if you do that, they should remain crispy throughout. Not sure why they became soft if you did that.
