Sugar-free, lemon and coconut cookies

Sweet treats without the guilt? Yes please. These lemon and coconut cookies are completely sugar-free, so you can indulge without undoing all your hard work at the gym. Right, what are we waiting for. Here’s the recipe:



2 eggs
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
Rind & juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 cup milk of choice
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
1/3 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp rice malt syrup


Preheat oven to 180C and line tray with baking paper. Combine eggs, vanilla, ginger, lemon rind and salt in a bowl and mix well. Stir in milk, lemon juice, coconut and coconut flour. Gently melt coconut oil and rice malt syrup in a separate bowl, then combine with other ingredients. Let mixture rest for a few minutes to thicken. The batter should be thick and wet, but not runny. (If too dry, add a dash more of milk. Too wet, add a teaspoon at a time of coconut flour.) Gently form 12 cookies and place on a tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
