Healthy Coconut Butter Cookies

My hubby loves Karachi Biscuits (from Pista house – Hyderabad) so much. But once I started looking at what is in them, I decided to make better tasting biscuits with me knowing the healthy ingredients are in for sure. That was the idea created resulted in a question – Who says healthy food is not tasty? In the quest to answer this question, my new posts will be the reflection of my journey to answer this question.
