Enjoy these gluten free-friendly treats knowing that although they’re rich and sweet, there’s no gluten protein to worry about.

  • Ingredients: 2 cups unsweetened shredded organic coconut
    1/4 cup either organic honey or organic maple syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond extract)
    1/3 cup dark chocolate chips  
    2 large egg whites
    pinch of salt
    6 ounces chocolate chips or chunks, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • Instructions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350º degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In a medium bowl mix together everything except the egg whites, salt and 6 ounces of melted chocolate making sure the coconut is evenly coated with the honey (or maple syrup). 
    3. In a second bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with a small pinch of salt. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes until stiff peaks form when you lift the mixer out.
    4. Gently fold the coconut mixture into the eggs. Chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
    5. Drop batter onto the lined baking sheet, one rounded tablespoonful at a time. I like to really press the batter into the tablespoon, then carefully tap the cookie out of the spoon. It makes for a more perfect shape.
    6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let chill for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to wire rack to continue cooling completely.
    7. When cool, dip the bottom of each macaroon in the melted chocolate and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, 20 to 30 minutes. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
