Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice flour and all-purpose flour. This blend of flours will give the cookies a delightful texture and flavor.
  3. Add the finely chopped roasted peanuts to the flour mixture. Peanuts will provide a rich nuttiness to the cookies and are a good source of protein.
  4. Stir in the sugar. Adjust the sugar quantity to your preference; if you prefer sweeter cookies, you can add a bit more sugar.
  5. Grate the coconut into the bowl. Coconut adds a tropical twist to the cookies and brings healthy fats and nutrients to the mix.
  6. Pour in the vegetable oil, which will help bind the ingredients together and keep the cookies moist.
  7. Add the baking powder and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Baking powder will give the cookies a slight rise, and salt will enhance the overall flavor.
  8. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until they come together to form a dough. You may need to use your hands to ensure everything is well incorporated.
  9. Once your cookie dough is ready, roll it into small balls, about the size of a walnut. Place these dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
  10. Gently flatten each dough ball with your palm to create cookie shapes. You can use a fork to make a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie if desired.
  11. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown at the edges.
  12. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack. As they cool, they’ll firm up and develop a wonderful crispy texture on the outside while remaining tender inside.
  13. Once completely cooled, savor these Nutty Peanut and Coconut Rice Flour Cookies with a cup of tea or coffee.
