Eggless Custard Coconut Cookies

Eggless Custard Coconut Cookies

 

I love baking and always strive to bake healthy.

These eggless custard cookies melt in the mouth. I had made this recipe by using refined flour earlier. It was loved by all my family members. I had made them with an equal amount of whole wheat flour and refined flour along with custard powder. I had added some nuts to it. Those cookies came out very well and were liked by my friends and family. I make them many times with different variations such as using pistachios, almonds, chocolate, plain vanilla.

This time I wanted to bake them for my son’s school’s Mother’s Day morning tea. Since many people are allergic to different nuts, I thought of using coconut to give it a nice flavour. I also wanted to make a healthy cookie so used the combination of whole wheat flour and oats with custard powder. The cookies came out so well and they were melt-in-the-mouth. The cookies had a nice aroma of custard and coconut.  My friends appreciated them. I was very happy to bake for them something healthy and tasty.

I could not resist myself eating when they were still warm and out of the oven.
