Oatmeal Coconut Kiwi Cookie…in the Microwave!

You know how fond I am of super easy, single serving desserts and treats. From my mug coffee cake to my “Snicker’s Bar” crèpe for one, I have quite a repertoire already of recipes that serve just one. It’s not that I’m selfish, it’s just that I seem to have a more adventurous taste than most people in my family. For example, I’m sure they would all be content with a simple chocolate chip cookie. But I find that kind of boring. I like to try different flavor combinations every day. That’s why today I made an oatmeal coconut kiwi cookie, to celebrate all the exciting flavors of summer! I used lemon curd as well, but could hardly taste it in the cookie. So if you want it to taste lemony, I suggest adding some lemon juice or lemon zest along with the lemon curd.

This cookie is healthy because it is made with whole grains and oats. Not just any old oats either – I used Bob’s Red Mill brand 5 grain rolled hot cereal. This is actually not only oats but a blend of oats plus wheat, barley, rye, flaxseed, and triticale. The coconut also adds some fiber, and the kiwi provides almost 120% of the daily value of vitamin C (as well as yet more fiber!)

Okay, so there’s no chocolate, but who doesn’t get bored of chocolate every once in a while? Come on, give it a try. It sure tastes great, and the nutritional benefits are excellent. In fact, this cookie is healthy enough that it could easily be served as part of a balanced breakfast. Maybe when kiwis go out of season, you could – *sigh* – replace it with chocolate chips.

Serves one

microwave cookie coconut oatmeal kiwi

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill brand 5 grain rolled hot cereal, dry
  • 2 tbls whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • cinnamon to taste (I just used a dash)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbl lemon curd
  • 3 tbls plain Greek yogurt (I used Fage brand)
  • 1 tbl sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 whole kiwi fruit, cut into slices

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients (not including the coconut). Add the wet ingredients and use a spoon to combine thoroughly. Dough will seem dry.

Press dough in a circle onto a small plate. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top, reserving some for topping if desired.

Microwave for 50-60 seconds (I did 50 but microwave ovens do vary.) Remove from microwave and top with the sliced kiwi and the remaining coconut flakes. Serve warm. You will need a spoon to eat this big cookie!
