Lemon Cookies


½ cup olive oil

¼ soya plain yogurt

3 lemons

½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon gluten-free all-purpose flour

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon millet flakes

½ cup unsweetened dried coconut, plus 1 tablespoon for dusting.


Mix together the olive oil, yogurt, juice of 1 lemon, and grated zest of 2 lemons in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, oats, millet, and coconut.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to form a soft dough.

Roll the dough into 20 balls, then place on a baking sheet and press down gently. Sprinkle the cookies with the remaining dried coconut and grated zest of 1 lemon.

Bake the cookies in preheated oven, at 350 °f, for 12-15 minutes, until golden. Let cool on the sheet for completely. Store in an airtight container and eat within 2-3 days.

My girls said, it tastes delicious I wasn’t able to try my own cookies because I’m allergic to coconut and it was a treat for the girls, I already have a very restrictive diet, and they’re very supportive the least I can do is meet them halfway by doing something special, that I know they’ll enjoy occasionally which is my lemon cookies.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
