Well, we won't be able to do anything against mother nature, then do something that we humans can do, brew a pot of chai!! and enjoy these absolutely delicious and eggless cookies to see you through this cold snap.

Although Easter tends to be all about chocolate, coconut is quite a popular ingredient used in the easter recipes.

Coconut and Cardamom Wholewheat Cookies are eggless and so delicious. These are prepared with basic ingredients and easy to prepare.

These eggless, crunchy and crispy coconut cookies can be prepared with basic ingredients which are so easily available in our kitchen. Nutty coconut, sweet and lovely delicate flavours from aromatic cardamom lend a unique taste and aroma to these cookies. Definitely, these are perfect for special occasions to indulge in . In my views, these cookies are not just guilt free or healthy, because they are made with whole wheat. As they are also loaded with Butter and Sugar so not every day but on an occasion like Easter, Christmas, a tea party or a coffee morning is perfect for it.

Don't like cardamom, omit it totally and add vanilla essence. 
Make vegan by using coconut oil or butter.
