Coconut Biscuits Recipe with Dried Mango and Pineapple

This easy coconut biscuits recipe with dried mango and pineapple makes a deliciously chewy biscuit with a taste of the tropics. Not quite a coconut macaroon, nor an American cookie, this traditional Australian-style biscuit is the kind my nanna used to make for afternoon tea – yet with the addition of coconut, palm sugar, and dried mango and pineapple.

  • 70 g butter
  • 70 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 150 g grated fresh coconut moist coconut flakes or desiccated coconut
  • 60 g plain flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 20 ml milk
  • 1 tsp sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp creamy palm sugar
  • 30 g mixed dried mango and pineapple finely diced


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar until creamy, then add the egg and combine well.
  • Add the coconut, flour, pinch of salt, milk, condensed milk, and palm sugar, and mix together well.
  • Lastly, stir in the finely diced dried mango and pineapple so they’re well distributed.
  • Using a teaspoon, spoon the biscuit mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper, evenly spacing the dollops.
  • Using your fingers, press each dollop down a little, shaping them into circles of around 5cm in diameter.
  • Bake for around 12 minutes until a light golden colour for a softish chewy texture or for 15 minutes until brown for a firmer biscuit.
  • Cool the biscuits on a wire rack before serving and if there are any left store them in an airtight container.
