Healthy Simple Coconut Macaroons
Photo by recipe author

Servings: 12

  • 6 egg whites (save the yokes to add to scrambled eggs)
  • Pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup honey (run your honey under some hot water if it has crystallized, it needs to be liquid)
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets with coconut oil.

Beat egg whites until almost stiff peaks form. Add salt. Slowly pour in honey while whipping the eggs.

Fold in the shredded coconut with a spatula until it's thoroughly mixed. Be gentle, you don't want to deflate the eggs.

Using a large cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheets spacing about 1 inch apart.

Time will vary depending on how big your cookies are. These took about 50 minutes. Allow to cool briefly on the cookie sheet. Remove with a thin spatula and cool completely. They will continue to harden and dry as they cool.

Hi, Thanks for this nice recipe. I tried this 2 times, but I do not know what is wrong that honey separates from the stuff,
and goes to the bottom and when mix it again and put the cookies on the was paper, honey comes out .

Are you getting your egg whites really fluffy first? Then slowly adding a stream of honey as you continue to whip the eggs?

Thanks, this quick and easy recipe is great as was said, drizzle the honey and more coconut. Gendly stir the mixture as you scoop to cookie sheet. The results are awesome!

Yesterday, I brought fifty of these yummy treats to our Sliver Sneakers class in the park day, and everybody loved them and were gone fast! The recipe worked better when I cut the honey to 1/3 cup instead of 2. Recommend them highly.

Can these be made with Stevia as the sweetener. If so, how much?

Could you substitute the honey for coconut butter? Or would this be too oily?

I was wondering if any tried this with maple syrup instead of honey. I may try it that way
