Whole wheat coconut cookies, Eggless cookies recipe

Whole wheat coconut cookies recipe with step by step pictures, crispy coconut cookies. Some time back i tasted a coconut cookies from Haldirams and it was too delicious. I have posted an eggless coconut cookies recipe few years ago. Few days back while meeting up with some friends, they were talking about the celebration of Ganpati in their place. Generally in South India we make modakam, ulundu kozhukattai, sundal, vadai and payasam for Ganesh Chaturthi. But in Maharastra, apart from making the traditional Ukadiche modak, they make varieties of sweets, pedas and even cookies for this festival. Also i have seen kids cut birthday cake for Ganesha. I really love the way kids do the pooja everyday and enjoy the festivity. Though i have few innovative ideas for kozhakkati stufing, i am pretty sure, they are hardly tried by anyone at home as we make only the traditional stuff. So decided to post this delicious whole wheat coconut cookies. I tried this recipe from here . Make this eggless whole wheat coconut cookies and let me know how it turned out. Also check out my complete collection of Ganesh Chaturthi recipes.
