Every now and then I get cravings for coconut cookies. I’ve tried multiple recipes and have had some devastating experiences. Some have looked like flatted pancakes and others have just tasted horrible. Finally, I stumbled across this simple few ingredient recipe. I originally made them without the honey but found that it felt like it was missing a bit of sweetness.
If you only have egg whites and shredded coconut this recipe would still work if you were looking for a healthy treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!
4 eggs whites, room temperature
1 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup vanilla (or coconut) protein powder
1 tbsp. chocolate chips, melted*
1 tbsp. honey*
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Place egg whites in bowl or kitchen aid mixer. With whisk attachment or hand blender, blend on high until egg whites form soft peaks. Add shredded coconut and protein powder and fold into the egg gently. Scoop out into even size 1″-2″ rounds. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Once out of the oven drizzle with a bit of chocolate. Drizzle with honey right before you serve.
