Lemon and Coconut Cookies Using Turmeric and Tamarind Coconut Sugar

This cold weather today got me in the mood to bake, I fancied trying out a little experiment with some delicious turmeric and tamarind coconut sugar from Coconom. A few people I have spoken to love coconut sugar but are unsure of how to use the flavoured ones especially the turmeric and tamarind. This recipe is easy and, if I do say so myself, very tasty. 

Without further a do, read on get inspired then purchase some of this wonderful sugar, bake with it and enjoy!


3/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1/4 Cup Almond Flour
1/2 Cup Softened Coconut Oil
1/2 Coconom Turmeric and Tamarind Coconut Sugar
2tsp Vanilla Essence
Rind of One Unwaxed Lemon


Soften coconut oil in the microwave for 15 seconds then add to a bowl with sugar and vanilla, give a little stir then add flours. 

Add lemon rind, using your hands combine the mixture into a large ball. Take small amounts of the mix and roll into balls with your hands. 

Place onto a parchment lined baking tray or grease the tray with coconut oil like I did, I ran out of parchment! 

Bake in the oven on a medium heat for 7-0 minutes. 

Cool and enjoy! 

Hmmmmm, these are so good and healthy to boot! The turmeric and tamarind coconut sugar gives these cookies a yummy caramel taste without being too sweet and paired with the lemon is a great combo. These will be being made a lot more in my kitchen thats for sure. 


Do you use coconut sugar in your baking?


  1. Yum! I bet lemon and coconut actually work really well together. I really need to get on the coconut sugar bandwagon.

    1. Oh yes you must and coconom is definitely the best out there!

  2. Wow! Thank you for introducing me to flavoured coconut sugar... I never heard of it before but it sounds like something I would LOVE to try. I use coconut sugar a lot in my baking with great success, I love it's natural caramel flavour. And what a beautiful and healthy sounding recipe this is... Really wanna try this one :-)
