Lime and Coconut Cookies

(Recipe adapted from this blog)

I was at Coles a couple of weeks ago, and spotted a bag of limes for $2. Had NO idea what I was going to do with a bag of limes, but I figured that someone out there in the interweb would have a ridiculously easy Thermomix recipe. And woo hoo, I found it! I’m not a fan of white chocolate so I didn’t bother with that part. I also didn’t have quinoa flakes, so I gave rolled oats a shot.


Zest and juice of two limes

170g raw sugar

120g cold butter

120g plain flour

60g self raising flour

100g oats

45g shredded coconut

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Place zest into the TMX bowl, and mill for 15 seconds/speed 8, stopping halfway to scrape down the sides if necessary.

  • I skipped the next step (lazy, you know how it is) and popped the sugar and butter in and blend for 10 seconds/speed 6.

  • Add remaining ingredients, and mix for 10 seconds/reverse/speed 4. Scrape down the sides and then mix for a further 7 seconds/reverse/speed 4.

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  • Roll mixture into balls (roughly 1 heaped teaspoon to a ball), pop it on a tin lined with baking paper, and flatten slightly. I had to prepare two tins.

  • Pop in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges start to brown. Dunzo.

      Hi there, have you got any baking powder at home? Apparently 1 cup plain flour + 1 tsp baking powder = 1 cup SR flour. If you don’t, why don’t you just try 180g plain flour (don’t worry about the SR flour) and see what happens. That’s the beauty of cooking: trial and error! Let me know how you go, best of luck!
