Mini Coconut Financiers / Minis Financiers À La Noix De Coco

Galit wanted something Kosher for Passover and asked Karine Vigaelles for advice. Karine suggested “Minis Financiers À La Noix De Coco” off her site, but substituting almond powder for flour. A great success. Very moist and light; a delightful contrast to common fare at passover.

Mini Coconut Financiers / Minis Financiers À La Noix De Coco

Very moist little cakes. "Financiers" to the French.


  • 75 grams butter
  • 50 grams desiccated coconut
  • 85 grams icing sugar
  • 25 grams flour or substitute more coconut or almond powder to make gluten free
  • 2 egg whites


  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Melt the butter over low heat until a hazelnut colour, then remove from heat, and set aside.
  • In a bowl, pour flour, coconut and icing sugar.
  • Add the egg white and whisk a moment.
  • Add the melted butter while continuing to stir.
  • Pour in the silicon financier moulds
  • Bake at 180C until golden / very lightly browned (10-15 minutes)


The original recipe was for 12 mini financiers so I increased the quantities to fill our silicon mould, which holds 20. And I translated it to English.
