Eggless Coconut Cookies + VIDEO!

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.

  1. LOVING the video, Manali!! It’s beautiful.
    And I’ve never had a coconut cookie like this before, so of course, it’s going to be happening .Looks so good!

  2. What a cool technique to blend up the coconut flakes into powder. I’ve never thought about doing that…but it makes sense, and I bet it’s a great baking ingredient. These cookies sound delicious, Manali! Oh, and nice job on the video. I’ve played around with video myself a bit lately, and I know how much time it can take. Well done! 🙂

    1. It sure is great in baking David! And agree, videos aren’t easy. I guess they get easier when you get a hang of it but I am way behind on that!

  3. I love the idea of grounding unsweetened coconut flakes into a fine coconut powder, I also enjoy the fact that these cookies are eggless. Looking forward to trying this recipe.

  4. Hey Manali wanted to check if fresh coconut can be used after dry roasting .. Your vdo is great help wanted to try with fresh coconut if can be used .. Please share

  5. Congrats on your first video, Manali — it came out great! And being the coconut lover that I am, I love the looks of these delicious cookies! TPinned!

  6. Yum, love the idea of coconut cookies! You did a wonderful job on the video too! I’ve been wanting to start making videos as well but it takes so much time! You did a great job with it and I’d love to see more videos from you!

  7. I tried these last night. They came out yummmmm! Almost like the Indian NICE biscuit. I sprinkled them with turbinado sugar. We loved them! The only thing I skipped is coconut extract, because I didn’t have any….Your recipe is a winner. Thanks Manali. Btw, you know me from the I-F eons ago 🙂

      1. You are right! That’s me 🙂

        I love baking, but I flopped at making cookies – either they came out too soft/runny or were too crisp/hard. When Goldilocks blessed these cookies last night, I was jumping with glee like a teenager who got her first kiss. You had me at whole wheat & coconut… yum again & thank you for the perfect recipe! Now, I’ll try baking some more cookies with my new founded confidence 😉

  8. Hi Manali..the cookies look perfect. I’m trying them right now..but it looks like they have become runny. The butter seems to have melted and the cookies are gone for a toss although it smells good. What can be the possible reason and how can I correct them.
    Looking forward to your reply.
    Thanks,
    Rekha

    1. Hi Rekha, I think your butter was too soft. It should only be at room temperature but still little firm to press. Too soft butter can ruin the recipe. Now that you have prepared the dough, I suggest chilling it for 3-4 hours and then bake. I hope that works!

  9. Just tried these Cookies 🙂 they tasted great but didn’t turn that crispy instead were softer …. Expected them to b more crispier… What would have went wrong??Will the little more quantity of butter make them softer?? I think my spoon was a little
    larger….

    1. Hello Prajakta! If you followed the recipe correctly, then the cookies should be quite crisp. All I can think right now is that your oven settings might be off. Get an oven thermometer and see if your oven temperature is off by few degrees – it can make a lot of difference. Next time bake them at higher temperature, did they get too brown from the bottom? If not, you should have baked them little longer. Use exact amount of butter mentioned in the recipe, it can affect the texture of the cookies. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Ivy! you may use fresh coconut powder, just make sure it’s completely dry. Yeah you may need to roast it a little to make sure there isn’t any moisture before using it in the recipe!

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?
