Coconut biscuits recipe
These coconut biscuits are simple, tasty and easy on the budget. They are perfect for kids to cook and made from simple pantry ingredients.
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 125g butter, melted
Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Line two baking trays with baking paper and set aside.
In a bowl, sift the flour and stir in the coconut and sugar to combine.
Mix in the egg and then melted butter until all ingredients are moist.
Roll tablespoon-sized balls of the mixture and place on baking tray, spaced well apart.
Bake for 12 mins. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the baking tray for 5 mins. Transfer to a wire rack to cool further.

- To make these appealing to children you can press Smarties into them before they cool.
