I was looking for a healthy recipe to make some healthy treats and came across a no-sugar macaroons recipe which i adapted to my ingredients. I originally made these healthy but my children wanted them a little sweeter so afterwards I added chocolate to decorate them!
1 cup of Dessicated Coconut
2 tablespoons of Almond Powder
1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil
1 egg white
Chocolate to decorate.
Optional - You could add some sugar.
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.
Step 2: Whisk the egg white until white and fluffy texture.
Step 3: Mix the dessicated coconut and almond powder together (add sugar if using).
Step 4: Add the egg white and coconut oil and mix all together.
Step 5: Add the mixture into cake moulds or you could just squash them together in your hand and place onto a greased baking tray. I like the mould option as they all stay in place!
Step 6: Place in the oven for about 10 minutes until slightly golden.
Step 7: If you are going to decorate then place some melted chocolate over the top of the macaroons when they have cooked and are still in the tray. Allow the chocolate to set - I placed the mould into the fridge to speed things up!
Step 8: Once the chocolate has hardened remove the macaroons from the mould and place chocolate side down on a plate.
Step 9: Using some more melted chocolate you can drizzle some over the the top of the macaroons and allow the chocolate to set again.
I am a coconut lover so I really did enjoy these made the no-sugar healthy way. I only added the chocolate at the end because the children wanted them a bit more sweeter!
