Eggless Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies

A healthier alternative to all purpose flour is whole wheat flour.  Here is my recipe for crunchy healthy coconut cookies.

Ingredients:
Whole Wheat Flour - about 2 1/4 cup
Dessicated (Dry) Coconut - 1/2 cup
Walnuts/Akrot - 1/4 cup (optional)
Unsalted Butter - 1/2 pound
Light Brown Sugar - about 1 cup
Green Cardamom/Elaichi - 2 pods
Baking Soda - 1/8 tsp
Baking Powder - 1/4 tsp
Whole Pistachios or any other nuts

Method:
1. Microwave butter for about 2 minutes to melt it.  Alternately, you can heat butter in a pan on a stove top, just enough to melt it.  Let the melted butter cool slightly.  Grind the cardamom seeds to a fine powder.  Roughly chop walnuts.
2. In a mixing bowl, add melted butter, sugar, dessicated coconut, chopped walnuts and cardamom powder.  Mix all the ingredients well with a fork or spoon.
3. Add wheat flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Mix again and divide the dough into 20 - 25 round balls.  Slightly flatten them and place the whole pistachios or almonds in the centre. 
4. Preheat the oven at 350 deg. F for about 10 minutes.  Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.  Place the cookies, each a few inches apart.  Bake the cookies at 350 deg. F for 12 - 15 minutes.  Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes.
