Coconut cookies | Eggless coconut cookies recipe (with and without oven)

Crispy coconut cookies, with and with oven methods, learn how to make it with the help of stepwise pictures and video.

In this post, I explained how to bake these coconut cookies with oven and without oven methods. The stovetop method is equally easy and yields the same crumbly yummy coconut cookies. And all you need to bake without an oven is a heavy flat bottom vessel/pan and a stand or perforated cooker plate.

Coconut cookies are so popular among kids and it’s so easy to prepare. Making cookies at home is not a tough job as it takes less than 30mins including mixing and baking.

Interestingly, this coconut cookie can be baked in two ways, crispy and soft crumbly. The dough is the same for both types, but the only difference is the baking time. For extra crispy, dark brown coconut cookies bake a little extra time.

And to get a soft, crumbly cookie, bake only for the prescribed time.

Furthermore, the coconut I used here is freshly grated coconut. Dry roasting fresh coconut is very important. Alternately, you can use desiccated coconut also which is exclusive for baking. In that case, dry frying is not required.

Recipe for crispy coconut cookies:

  • Roast until you get a nice aroma to light brown color.
  • Instead of roasting fresh coconut, you can use desiccated (fried) coconut exclusive for baking purpose.
  • Let this cool down completely aside.
  • In another bowl, take butter and powdered sugar.
  • Whisk with a hand mixer for five minutes vigorously to get a smooth mix.
  • Keep a sieve on the bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  • Now add milk gradually and start mixing.
  • Use fingers and knead well to get a firm dough.
  • Divide the cookie dough into small lemon size balls.
  • Shape the balls, dip(roll) one-half side of the ball in the remaining coconut.

For baking in the oven:

  • Arrange the balls with enough space in the baking tray in such a way that coconut layer on top.
  • Press the dough balls gently with a fork.
  • Don't press hard as the dough may break.
  • Shape the edge and bake for 15-18mins according to your preference.
  • For soft mild chewy coconut cookies, 15mins baking is enough.
  • To get super crispy, browned cookies leave for baking up to 23mins approx.

For baking on the stove top:

  • Grease an aluminum or silver plate with oil& dust with flour.
  • Instead, you can line with a baking paper.
  • Arrange the balls with enough space in the plate in such a way that coconut layer on top.
  • Keep this plate inside the stove heated heavy bottom pan. Make sure the stand/cooker plate is there inside the pan.

Notes

Tips: 1) First of all, the crispness or chewiness(softness) of the cookies, is depending on the baking time. To get extra crispy brown cookies, bake for little more time as mentioned in the recipe. To get soft white cookies, bake only for the specified time. 2) Moreover, you can add chopped nuts or choco chips for extra toppings. 3) Finally, do not avoid the pinch of salt as this gives an enhanced taste to the cookies.
