Evening tea with a few cookies is a ritual of mine. If I've just a cup of tea without any cookies, it doesn't feel quite right. I think I picked up that habit during my PG days in Bangalore. I wasn't a big fan of the food they served in college canteen and my only option was a small cup of Nescafe with a packet of Parle-G biscuits.
It's been sometime I've baked cookies at home. I keep searching for Cookie recipes and often I end up with Chocolate Chip Cookies. Recently I bought Coconut Oats Cookies and we both liked it. I started looking out for Oats Coconut cookies and this is the result.
What I liked most about these cookies is the combination of Oats and Coconut with a hint of Cardamom. I'm not sure whether it's the coconut or the cardamom or the Cashew, the cookie kinda tasted Indian to me in flavours :)
Hope you will also enjoy this recipe..

Hi Maria – Trying this recipe for first time… in your recipe you mention adding coconut twice. So 50% is added at first stage & 50% at later stage?
Sorry, that was a mistake in the recipe. I’ve corrected it now. Coconut is added only once in the end along with cashew. Thanks for pointing it out.
Can we substitute 1/4th cup cooking oil instead of the egg? For an eggless version..alot of baking websites on the internet say we can substitute with vegetable oil.. any idea?
Do you have a good recipe for gingerbread cookies, Maria?
Sorry, I havent tried that yet… But I’ll be posting a recipe for Gingerbread Cake soon :)
Can you tell if you have used fresh coconut or desiccated ?
I’ve already mentioned in the notes of the recipe, that I’ve used fresh grated coconut :)
Hi Maria, I am John. I tried this recipe. it turned out reallly good. Thanks for sharing. I have a recipe request. Can you please share the recipe for making masala biscuit or erivulla biscuit ( round shaped and brown in color) , pineapple biscuit or banana biscuit (shape of a cashew nut and yellow in color). These two are very popular in all the bakeries in kerala.
