Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12 - 18 biscuits
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup dry shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed (1 stick)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a food processor, grind oats. flour, coconut and brown sugar until a coarse mixture is formed. Transfer it to a bowl and add small pieces of cold butter or you can even grate the cold butter. Add salt and baking powder and using hands mix until the mixture resembles a coarse granola with clumps. Now slowly add milk starting with 2 tbsp and mixing gently until it forma a stiff dough. I ended up using 3.5 tbsp milk but it will depend on where you live.
  3. Now lay a parchment paper on your work surface and place the dough ball on top. Cover with another parchment paper and roll it to ¼" thickness.
  4. Cut circular shaps using cookie cutter. Gather the leftover dough after cutting shapes and repeat. Transfer to a lined baking sheet using a flat spatula so cookies don't break.
  5. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until edges start to get golden.
  6. Cool on baking sheet for 5-10 mins and then cool on cooling rack.
  7. If doing chocolate version, melt chocolate. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Place a glass bowl on top making sure that the bottom of glass bowl is not touching boiling water. Place chocolate chips in glass bowl and melt.
  8. Smear cookies with melted chocolate!
