Mini coconut & date cookies


This is a slight adaptation of a previous recipe I did a while ago, a toned down version to suit younger tastes. This very simple recipe takes just a few mins to prep and the little cookies are always well received by the wee ones.

Ingredients for 20 mini cookies:
100g dates
100g pecans
100g cashews
75g desiccated coconut
100ml olive oil
Free range egg

– preheat the oven to 170C/350F and lightly grease a non stick baking tray with olive oil

– if you have a high powered blender or food processor, add all ingredients and whiz on high until a dough forms

– if you are mixing by hand, finely chop your nuts and dates, then add the coconut. Whisk the egg and oil together briefly then pour over the other ingredients and combine well

– using two teaspoons gather 50p coin sized pieces of dough and flatten into a cookie shape

– bake for 7 mins and leave to cool before serving
