Walking through the aisle in a local supermarket, seeing all the artificial looking cookies and candies, made half a month ago, brought to the supermarket who knows when, stored who knows where got me thinking. Can I make a healthier and fresh version of something sweet that goes really well with a hot cup of tea, or milk?

And then it just hit me. Nuts, coconut and some toppings! There you have it. The base to create a sweet healthier alternative to old, artificial cookies.

Bake 12 minutes at 180 °C, or until they get gold- brownish color. Don’t worry about the edges getting burned a bit, that actually makes them crispier. Prepare your toppings and decorations like, brown melted chocolate, almond and coconut flakes. Don’t forget to let the cookies cool before dripping melted chocolate on them.
