Coconut Friands are delicious, feather light Coconut treats made in no time at all ! This is a Coconut-lover’s dream treat !
This is another recipe I found on Pinterest and have made several times already. Never a flop, just light and fluffy and oh, soooo coconutty !
I have only made two tiny changes to the original recipe for these Coconut Friands.
Before we get on to the recipe … remember our new puppy ?? (who was still nameless in the post)
No more nameless – Meet REX ! Very cute, lovable and already taking over the household and everybody’s hearts!
These Coconut Friands are a coconut lover’s dream come true ! Of which I am most certainly an addict. I just love anything coconut.
Whether it is a sweet treat or used in a savory dish, I would normally over indulge in coconutty treats or dishes. Serve the Friands with a cup of tea when you have a friend over at tea time.
OR, serve as part of a sweet party platter ! They look so good on any display, with or without other sweet treats and usually the first to go as well.
