Almond and Coconut Cookies for Granny, healthy and delicious!

These fluffy cookies are so tasty that you will be craving them with no guilt sensation as they are light and easy to digest.

The idea of making these cookies came to me from cooking for a family very dear to me, who have a 99-year-old grandmother who likes eating cookies but cannot eat them because she has trouble chewing well. I was thinking about how to make them softer, so here is the recipe, I have done it several times modifying some ingredients. The mixture of almond and coconut flavour is very good, and dates give them a special touch.

KITCHEN TIPS: If you don’t like coconut flavour, you can substitute this flour for rice flour. To give more intensity to the sweetness, you can replace rice syrup with maple syrup, but you have to know that the greater the intensity of sweetness (even if it’s natural), the higher the glycemic index in your blood.
