Yes, it is the season of over-eating, yet I do want to make an effort to have (semi) healthy alternatives on the menu. This is where these adorable macaroons come in handy! I discovered coconut early in my life and what I like is its natural sweetness. I always try to find new recipes to include coconut (savoury or sweet).
So, with no further ado, here is the recipe:
adapted from peanut butter and peppers
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
250g coconut, shredded
2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven at 160 degrees C at fan. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I'm a recent addict to the reusable one). In a bowl add all ingredients with the order written and mix well. For forming, you can either drop a spoonful onto the baking sheet, or do as I did: use an old-fashioned coffee measuring spoon (that looks like a cone) or make other whimsical forms - this is a fun recipe and it's up to you to show your creativity! Bake for about 12 minutes until edges begin to brown.
