Recipe for Coconut Macaroons with Desiccated Coconut

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: Dark chocolate for dipping

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, combine the desiccated coconut, coconut sugar, coconut flour, and salt. Mix well to ensure an even distribution of ingredients.
  3. Whisk the Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
    • Gently fold in the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:
    • Gradually fold the egg white mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix until everything is well combined and forms a sticky, cohesive dough.
  5. Shape the Macaroons:
    • Using a cookie scoop or your hands, form small mounds of the coconut mixture and place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
    • Leave some space between each macaroon to allow for spreading.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
    • Keep an eye on them to prevent over-browning.
  7. Optional Chocolate Dip:
    • If desired, melt some dark chocolate and dip the bottoms of the cooled macaroons. Allow the chocolate to set.
  8. Cool and Enjoy:
    • Allow the macaroons to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Store:
    • Once fully cooled, store your coconut macaroons in an airtight container. They can be kept at room temperature for a few days or refrigerated for longer freshness.

These coconut macaroons are not only a treat for coconut enthusiasts but also a delightful, gluten-free option for those with dietary preferences. Enjoy the rich, tropical flavors in every bite!
