20(ish)--- Coconut Macaroons

I've always loved macaroons, but I guess I figured they were difficult to make. Not so much. AND they contain NO butter or oil. Coconut is naturally high in saturated fat however. One macaroon still contains only 70 calories.


Coconut Macaroons

Serves 3 dozen

14oz flake coconut

2/3 cup sugar

6 Tbsp flour

4 egg whites

1 tsp pure almond or vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix coconut, sugar, and flour in a large bowl. Stir in egg whites and extract until well blended. Drop tablespoons of batter onto greased and floured baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Remove immediately from sheet onto wire racks. Cool completely.
