Orange Coconut Macaroons Recipe
I had some egg whites to use up after making pudding, so I “whipped up” some coconut macaroons. I took a basic recipe I found online and improvised with healthy sugars and the orange flavoring. They came out great!
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp stevia
1/2 tsp orange extract (for plain macaroons replace with 1 tsp vanilla extract)
2 cups shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 300° F. Grease a cookie sheet.
In mixer add egg whites and beat until frothy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until stiff peaks form.
Gradually add the honey, stevia, and extract.
Turn off mixer and gently fold in the shredded coconut. You want the mixture to be stiffer than meringue (not soupy), but not as thick as cookie dough. If it’s soupy, add a little more shredded coconut.
Drop by rounded spoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes.
