I love coconut and this is my recipe for fitting as much coconut as possible into a cookie!


Couple of table spoonfuls of butter

Small amount of sugar

Coconut - desiccated or fresh

A few table spoonfuls of plain flour

One egg

A few table spoonfuls of oat bran

One teaspoon of baking powder

Half a spoonful of honey

Glacé cherries to decorate

First cream a couple of spoonfuls of butter with a spoon. 

Add a bit of sugar.  Most recipes would have the same amount of sugar to marge/butter, but I tend to use a little less because the coconut is a bit sweet and also because I add a bit of honey later.

Mix it in.

Beat an egg and mix that in too.

Then add a couple of spoonfuls of plain flour - you don't need to fold in as they are really biscuits.

Add a couple of spoons of oat bran or any other cereal you want to add.

Add a teaspoon of baking powder.

Add as much coconut as you can mix in!

If the mix gets too dry you can always add a little bit of water.

And then add a spoonful of honey.

You can taste it now and see if it’s sweet enough for you - if not you can even add more sugar at this stage.

Shape with a couple of spoons into rough circles on greaseproof paper on a baking tray, and squish a half or quarter of glacé cherry in the middle.

Preheat an oven to 180 degrees Celsius, and then pop them in for about 10 minutes.  

They should be going a little bit brown, and you can leave them in until they are quite brown if you prefer them that way - I tend to take them out now so they stay a bit chewy.  The more chewy they are, the quicker you have to eat them as the more moisture, the quicker they go bad!
