Coconut & Vanilla Easy Festive Biscuits


This is a paid collaboration with The Coco Road.

I honestly can't believe that Christmas is next week! I know everyone seems to say it every year, but this month has flown by and I can't believe Christmas has snuck up on us so quickly! Like most people, I've been stressing over Christmas shopping and getting back from my trip to Italy at the beginning of the month, I feel like I am so far behind on everything! Which sadly means that my Christmas baking has had to take a back seat, but I did manage to do some baking last weekend that I can't wait to share with you in todays post.

I am certainly no expect at decorating cute designs on biscuits like you see on Pinterest and I know a lot of people can relate, which is why I wanted to bring you these delicious and super simple coconut and vanilla festive biscuits. You could also add ginger to these biscuits to turn them into gingerbread stars, but it's completely optional!


Prep Time : 30 mins    Cook Time: 15 minutes

You will need:

For the biscuits

- 1 cup Coco Road Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

For decorating the biscuits

- 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 1 tsp Coco Road Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
- 1 tbsp hazelnuts or peanuts, crushed
- 1 tbsp vegan sprinkles


1. Pre heat the oven to 180C.

2. In a large mixing bowl, add the coconut oil and whisk until it becomes soft and fluffy, either by hand or with a stand mixer.

3. Sieve the icing sugar into the bowl and mix the two ingredients together until well combined.

4. Add the vanilla extract and sieve in the plain flour, once again mixing everything together until completely combined.

5. Roll the dough into two balls and place them both back into the bowl. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

6. While the dough is in the refrigerator, line two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.

7. Once the dough is done, remove from the fridge and cover a clean, flat surface with flour. Roll out one of the balls of dough with a rolling pin. Cut each biscuit with your favourite cookie cutter, making sure they are all equal sizes at around 1/4" thickness. Keep repeating this step until all the dough has been used. Repeat again with the second ball of dough.

8. Spread the biscuits out equally on the baking sheet and place in the oven for around 10 minutes, checking on them often. You only want them to turn slightly golden as they will harden once removed from the oven anyway.

9. Once all of the biscuits are almost finished cooking, start melting the chocolate chips in a bowl either in a microwave or with a saucepan. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil into the chocolate chips before melting them both completely.

10. Once the biscuits are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for at least 15 minutes before decorating.

11. To decorate, I dipped half of each biscuit into the melted chocolate and added a sprinkle of crushed hazelnuts or peanuts onto each biscuit from one tray. On the biscuits from the second tray, I dipped half of each biscuit into the melted chocolate, but added vegan friendly gold sprinkles onto each of them instead of nuts.

12. Place the decorated biscuits onto a lined baking sheet and place them in the refrigerator for around 8 - 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set before enjoying!

These are the perfect festive snack that kids can enjoy just as much as adults, so would be great to take them along to any family gatherings over Christmas!

You can purchase Coco Road coconut oil from amazon. They currently only sell their 1.6L virgin coconut oil, but are soon releasing their smaller jars in January, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

What's your favourite Christmas treat?

Love Always,
