My kids have never had coconut macaroons, and I loved them as a child. So, I found this awesome recipe (one of the few without sweetened condensed milk). The only thing this one (from Alton Brown) had was:
- egg whites, (totally healthy and good for you. 4 egg whites has 16 grams of protein)
- a little sugar, (this just makes it taste good)
- some coconut, (also a power food!)
They turned out great! I ate three. My husband had several. But my kids, the little stinkers, weren’t exactly fans. My husband and I were both shocked they didn’t like them. However, I should have known. They have never liked coconut. I had hoped these cookies would change their mind.
I whipped the egg whites until stiff
Perfect nesting place for the wounded bird we found in our garage last summer.
