Vegan Almond Coconut Cookies , Eid Delicacy 1


The sumptuous Sheerkhorma and Saffron Sevia are definitely the classic delicacies served on the big holiday of Eid,but I also love to compliment the Eid feast with some adorable baked goodies.



These nutty cookies are ridiculously simple to bake and quite a treat on the special day.Did I mention these are also incredibly nutritious ?


Recipe : Vegan Almond Coconut Cookies with Dark Chocolate Drizzle
yields about a dozen cookies
Ingredients
1 cup fine shred coconut
1 cup fine ground raw almonds
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/4 cup Agave nectar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon virgin pressed coconut oil
1/2 cup good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method
In a large mixing bowl combine the coconut,almonds ,salt and flour.In another smaller bowl mix in the sugar,honey and melted coconut oil.Stir in the honey mixture in to the coconut mixture,combine well.
Preheat Oven to 350F.
Take a tablespoon of mixture,roll and slightly flatten the balls, lay on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.Bake for 10-12 minutes,until lightly crisp on top.Let cool before drizzling the chocolate over.

Melt the chocolate in microwave,stir every 10 seconds until completely melted,add about a tablespoon of soy or almond milk and keep stirring to make the mixture smooth and glossy .

Using a spoon ,drizzle the chocolate all over the cookies.Can serve immediately.Or to store let cool completely,can be kept in refrigerator for over a week.

Eid Mubarak dear. Lovely cookies. That closeup snap makes me crave:)

Yasmeen, Happy Ramzaan! I just made these cookies.. I think my almond flour was different so it didn't bind much so I added a whipped egg as well. My daughter's enjoying the cookies as I type this! I took a bite too.. They are really good!

Thank you! :)

salaam sister,

these cookies look amazing! just wanted to let you know, however, that with honey in the recipe, they are not vegan.

i was bummed when seeing this, but a simple substitution with agave syrup or brown rice syrup would veganize them in a jiffy!

take care

Jazakallah,I'll make the correction.

Just made these, but substituted flax seed meal for the flour- to get a gluten free feel. I think this makes them less beautifulthan yours- mine look more like chocolate covered falafel balls than yours do...but we'll see how my husband likes them. He said they smelled amazing in the oven.
