Hey folks!

Happy Sunday to you!  I was just browsing through my recipe folder in my inbox and came across the following recipe for coconut drop cookies!  The recipe comes courtesy of VegNews and was created by
VegNews columnist Hannah Kaminsky.  I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of her cookbook "My Sweet Vegan" at Vida Vegan Con and I look forward to giving her recipes a try!

I decided to post the following recipe that VegNews sent because I have been enjoying a good amout of coconut lately (mainly due to the coconut water I've been using as a base for my morning smoothies) so these cookies caught my eye! I do enjoy baking but tend to always make my chocolate chip cookies (I didn't get nicknamed "Rerun" for nothing, lol) so it's time for me to switch it up and try some new stuff! 



1-1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup light agave syrup

1/4 cup non-hydrogenated margarine, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large, dry skillet over medium heat, add coconut and stir constantly until flakes are golden brown. Immediately place in a large bowl, and allow to cool completely. Once coconut has cooled, whisk in flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a medium bowl, combine sugar, agave syrup, and margarine. Stir well, then add wet mixture into the dry mixture. Mix until just combined, being careful not to over-beat. Use a 3-ounce ice cream scoop to portion out cookies, and place at least 1-1/2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet, fitting about nine cookies on one sheet.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until barely browned around the edges and no longer shiny on top. Let cookies rest on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. These sound great! I tend to have more cookie fails than anything else I make, though I bet even I can't screw these up!

  2. Hey Crissie! I have all faith in you..LOL! Let me know if you make them!
