Almond coconut cookies step-by-step recipe with photos.
Soft, chewy melt-in-mouth cookies... Who doesn’t want a little treat with their cuppa! And if the cookies are made with the goodness of almond, coconut, and chia seeds, it is just perfect.
I wanted to make something different from a standard chocolate chip cookies so that we don't feel guilty while nibbling on them. I stumbled upon this recipe from the blog 'minimalistbaker' and I was stoked. All my favourite things in one – almond, coconut, chocolate chips. And there was no going back.
I adapted the recipe from their blog but changed a few things to suit our taste buds. I replaced the eggs with chia eggs as I wanted to make them egg-free. I was unsure whether chia eggs will bind though, as I have never used them in cookies before. But it worked absolutely fine. We loved them so much that I already had a second batch going before the first one was over.
Gluten-free, egg-free, and most importantly, guilt-free cookies that are to die for. This one is going to stay in my kitchen for a long time now.
