The recipe for Orange Coconut Drop Cookies was adapted from a little specialty cookbook Wholesome Cookies by Jane Marsh Dieckmann.
Orange Coconut Drop Cookies
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
zest of 1 orange
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lightly greasing or line baking sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Beat the egg well, then add the oil and honey. Add the orange zest and the orange juice. Stir in the flour, wheat germ, and salt. Blend in coconut and walnuts.
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
I like to bake cookies on parchment paper. I sprayed the paper lightly with nonstick cooking spray because the original recipe called for a greased cookie sheet.
This recipe makes a small batch of cookies - there were only 21 cookies in the entire batch.
Not everyone is a coconut fan, but if you are, I think you'll like these Orange Coconut Drop Cookies.
