Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies

Both TH and I are lovers of coconut cookies. But off late I’ve started avoiding bakery goodies as they use lots of margarine or vanaspati and maida. I admit eating butter and sugar is no good but worse is eating these too unhealthy stuff, right? This was my humble attempt towards a splendid cookie. I used whole wheat flour instead of maida and copra instead of desiccated coconut. The recipe gives a chewy type of cookie which is how we like our traditional coconut cookies.
