Best ever healthier brownies for valentine's day

I just baked these brownies I created while back and used a heart shape cookie cutter to make them especial for valentine’s day. If...

I made these beautiful valentine’s cookies a time back, and even though they were brilliant I wanted to get an even healthier option. We realize that valentine’s day it’s approaching so I figured I make these again.

I experimented with the coconut oil they usually turned out beautifully. They may not be that sweet and also the coconut flavor is better still now that I added the coconut oil. Through experience i opted for employing a smaller blameless , this time therefore, the cooking time was less.

You can easily go ahead and used the 3/4 cup of butter instead if you don’t have coconut oil, they will likely still be perfectly fine and yummy. Next occasion I make these, that will in my daughter’s house party, I will add a further 1/4 cup sugar though.

Anyhow, you can also make these valentine’s coconut cookies which shape you prefer. I got an alternative hello kitty standard for my Two year old daughter so I figured I have the for her way too.

If you try them let me know….I hope they produce as good as they did for my family 🙂


This is how I rolled the cookies. Somewhere between plastic wrap. You should don’t cut the cookies too think otherwise they won’t cook good, they will become crumbly we\’re not them!!

You can see the slight brown color for the cookies after baking them for 10-12 minutes. I made some pink and a few purple.

My kids as expected ate the hello kitty shaped cookies first 🙂 so when you can see no fancy decoration techniques here 🙂

My job decorating the cookies has not been very elaborate plus i actually hardly used any glaze about them. They weren’t too sweet in any respect so any time I will use and other 1/4 cup of sugar.

Yield: 20 cookies


1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup unrefined sugar, you should do 3/4 cup since the cookies aren\’t that sweet at all
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup butter, 70 degrees, 1 stick
1/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature
5-7 tablespoons milk, We used low fat
1 teaspoon coconut extract, optional
A small number of drops of pink food coloring


7 tablespoons confectioner\’s sugar
3-4 tablespoons fat free milk



In a bowl, with all your hands mix flour and butter until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Add coconut oil, sugar, coconut, milk, coconut extract and food coloring. Mix soon you form a soft dough.

Preheat oven to 350F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Roll out the dough about 1/4 inch thick and stamp out hearts running a cookie cutter (I reveal the dough among plastic wrap i find simple to do as well as use almost every other cookie cutter shape you want).

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool during the baking sheet for minutes roughly and then transfer the cookies to your wire rack to cool down completely before glazing.

To decorate cookies mix glaze ingredients and drizzle it on the cookies.
