Coconut Walnut Shortbread

I created this recipe to use the ridiculously delicious Coconut Walnut Butter I made (ok, it may have to stop myself from eating it straight from the jar) and give to a friend as a congratulations you just had the most beautiful baby girl gift. 

They're very short (so be careful to allow them to cool before moving) but make a wonderful alternative to shortbread. Granted they don't taste buttery, more coconutty!, but they do have that smooth mouth feel that higher fat desserts give and taste divine.

Coconut Walnut Shortbread
1.5 cups desiccated coconut
1 cups walnuts
1/2 cup coconut sugar
(or 1/2 quantity of coconut walnut butter)
1/2 cup self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
desiccated coconut to sprinkle on top
  • Make coconut walnut butter (if not already done)
  • Pre heat oven to 180 c
  • Ensure nut butter is a room temperature and add to a bowl
  • Sift in flour and baking powder
  • Combine ingredients
  • Roll into small balls, flatten and sprinkle with desiccated coconut
  • Bake on a lined tray at 180 c for 30 mins or until golden
  • Allow to cool on tray to avoid breakage
  • Enjoy!
  • These keep really well so no need to eat more of these rich little things than you need to
I hope this gives you an idea of how to make shortbread with no dairy- it is possible after all!

Love and Smiles,
