Servings: 12-16
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine all dry ingredients together, mixing well, and then add the wet ingredients. Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto cookie sheet.

Bake until golden on the edges, approximately 10 minutes, but begin checking at 8 minutes, as all oven temperatures vary.

I subed about 1/3 Stevie with Organic Sugar and real lemon juice for extract. It was a little dry. Per Hubby, a little bland. But worth tweaking to make a five star. I know it's way more healthy than most recipes for Macaroons so I gave it four stars.

I probably needed to specify extra large egg whites! So sorry about that.

Also, coconut flour varies a lot in moisture from brand to brand, so you may try adding more liquid until you get a more satisfactory consistency!

Yes, you do have to add a little more liquid. Mine was a little dry but delicious, nevertheless.

I give it four stars. One question, do you beat the egg whites first?

These Macaroons came out very tasty. I used Truvia, and lemon juice instead of water. My favorite macaroons so far.

Do you beat the egg whites or not? The recipe sounds good.

I do not beat the eggwhites! One of the things about my recipes -- I'm a lazy cook (honest!) so I like to keep things as simple and quick as possible. ;)

No, I didn't. I used pasteurized egg whites from a carton.

Any idea if this would work with an egg substitute?
Allergic to eggs.

No idea! I've never tried it.

I have fresh limes so I used lime juice and zest. Plus, other posts said they macaroons were kinda dry. So I used 3 egg whites and 2 TBSP of coconut cream concentrate. They turned out very yummy!

Aloha and mahalo Megan! Am thinking I will combine shredded with ribbons of coconut and also using coconut sugar. Any thoughts? Has anyone else used coconut sugar?

Do these freeze well?
# Posted By Sheryl | 10/30/13 7:28 AM
I did it and they were very good!! I added 3 white eggs as you suggested.
