Leah, our daughter, Keeper of the Home Apprentice loves baking and loves making macaroons; they are so quick and easy to make, with just a few ingredients and a little bit of time, that is all it takes. Take a look, if you like your food with coconut, you’ll love these as they incorporate unsweetened organic coconut flakes which we purchase from Tropical Traditions.
Tropical Traditions Coconut Flakes Facts
Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut, Coconut Flakes, and Coconut Chips are made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Their dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. Coconut meat contains fiber which aids in digestion .
¾ cup organic sugar or sucanat (we use less)
2 ½ cups unsweetened shredded coconut
2 egg whites (the egg yolks were put to good use)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix together with your hands if or a wooden spoon if you prefer organic sugar, coconut, egg whites, vanilla and salt.
- Dampen hands with cold water. Use 1 ½ TBSP to form mounds, and place on prepared baking sheet. Space the mounds about 1 inch apart.
- Bake the macaroons until they are golden brown. This may take about 15-17 minutes. Rotate halfway through.
- Let them cool on a wire rack. We just let them be on the parchment paper.
- These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days. Ours never last more than a day. We make them so rarely.
