Milo and Coconut Cookies

Crossing the classic chocolate chip cookie with an Australian staple – Milo – these cookies are a celebration of flavour that’s both familiar and delightfully new. The combination of the malted chocolate flavour from Milo with the sweet, nutty essence of desiccated coconut creates a textural and taste profile that’s hard to resist.

What makes this Milo and Coconut Cookie recipe a standout choice for busy parents is its simplicity. It calls for pantry staples that you’re likely to have on hand and requires minimal prep time. With a step-by-step guide, you can whip up a batch in no time and have smiles all around.

The Cookie that keeps on giving

Freezer Friendly Cookies

Life with kids is rarely predictable, so having a batch of these cookies stored in the freezer provides that much-needed contingency plan for when you’re running low on time or munchies. Just pop the frozen cookies into lunchboxes and they will be defrosted by morning tea, or leave to thaw for 20 minutes on the kitchen bench for a quick morning tea snack.
