I am loving these Easy Coconut Biccies.
They are perfect for lunchboxes as they have no nuts! Also great when you have a bare pantry – you only need four ingredients and they are so, so easy to throw together.
Feel free to add in your own bits and pieces – I have made them before with a mixture of dried fruit and some healthier choc chips would be yummo too. You may want to add in a little drizzle of honey and maple syrup if you like a really sweet biscuit, but I think the sultanas make them sweet enough.

Vital Stats: grain free, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, refined sugar free, paleo
Okay, this is what you need:
2 cups organic dessicated coconut
2 organic eggs
1 cup organic sultanas
1 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
HOT TIP: Using organic coconut and fruit means you don’t have to worry about added sulphur dioxide. Read more here.
Okay, this is how you do it:
Preheat your oven to 180°c on a gentle setting. Fan force is too harsh for these little babies.
Mix everything together – I like to get my hands in there and give it a good massage to distribute the egg properly.
Squeeze into round biccies, about the size of a walnut. It will make about 15.
Whack on your baking paper lined tray and fling into the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until they are just set and lightly brown. Keep an eye on them!
Leave to cool on the tray to firm up.
HOT TIP: I love the If You Care Baking paper to cook with. It is unbleached and 100% chlorine free. I even wash it and reuse if it’s not too yucky. Your regular baking paper can contain chromium (a heavy metal).
