Coconut Macaroons (Gluten free & Dairy free)

Coconut Macaroons

(Gluten free & Dairy free)

I fell in love with coconut 3 years ago because of its aroma, taste and health benefits.   If this holiday season you would like to try and enjoy my coconut inspired recipes, I guarantee you will love them and  you won't gain any extra pounds from this yummy dessert. 

What you need:

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
  • 3 cups  unsweetened shredded coconut ( I like Bob's red mill)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure stevia 

  • I try to make everything gluten & dairy-free, and avoid adding sugar & salt during winter.
  • However, if you don't mind salt and sugar you can add the 2 items below. 
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • ½ cup agave nectar (you don't need stevia if you use agave nectar)

  • Directions:

    1. In a mixing bowl whisk egg whites and salt until stiff (if you use salt)
    2. Fold in stevia, vanilla cinnamon powder and coconut
    3. Drop batter onto a  Parchment paper  lined baking sheet, one rounded tablespoonful at a time
    4. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned
    5. Serve

    • Makes 48 macaroons

    I hope you enjoy a simple but Delicious and Healthy recipe !
