Coconut, Orange And Oats Biscuits


These biscuits are given tropical flavors with grated coconut and grated orange zest that's mixed into the dough. Instead of flour, they are made with oat flakes, for wholesome goodness (buy gluten-free oats if desired). Bake just until they begin to take on color around the edges, when they will be the crisp but still slightly chewy. Once completely cooled, the cookies can be kept airtight at room temperature for up to a week.
