Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut I used desiccated, but feel free to use shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a handheld mixer for about 30 seconds until just foamy. Add honey and vanilla extract and beat on high until stiff (soft peak stage, ~5 minutes).
  3. Fold in coconut until just combined and scoop out 1 tablespoon sized cookies. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until set and lightly browned.
  4. If desired, dip half of the cookies in melted chocolate and add sprinkles (or crushed freeze-dried berries).
