coconut macaroons

recipe

Adapted from: http://joepastry.com/2009/coconut_macaroon_recipe/

 

 

Yield: 12 servings

Serving size: 1 small coconut macaroon cookie

 

 

6 Tbsp. (85ml) coconut cream OR heavy cream (>30% fat)

1 extra-large egg white (~35g) OR two small egg whites

3 Tbsp. (45g) powered erythritol or xylitol

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract OR vanilla bean paste

1/4 tsp. salt

1 + 1/4 cup (100g) dried coconut flakes (unsweetened)

 

 

1. Preheat your oven to 375F (190C), then whisk together the egg white, sweetener and salt until frothy and everything has dissolved together.

 

2. Next, mix in the vanilla and coconut cream and mix well.

 

3. Slowly mix in the dried coconut flakes, the mixture will seem dry at first but continue mixing and it will come together.

 

4. Scoop into 12 small balls and bake on a non-stick baking mat or baking paper for 6 minutes, rotate the pan, then bake for another 6-7 minutes. The longer you bake them, the drier and crumblier they will get. Cool fully before serving.
