Coconut Macaroons

Meet my new obsession for this holiday season: coconut macaroons. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made these in the last few weeks. These babies have helped me avoid overdoing it on the overwhelming amount of holiday cookies my house seems to be accumulating. The best part? They’re made with all good-for-you ingredients. Therefore, I feel no regret constantly popping them in my mouth 🙂

Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons: 

(Makes 30)


2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

2 egg whites

2 tbsp vanilla protein powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

optional: dark chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients together and pinch into balls. Bake for 18 minutes. If desired, melt some chocolate chips and drizzle over the macaroons.

  6. I love macaroons!
    As a slight modification: if you pre-toast the shredded coconut, the flavor of the coconut is slightly sweeter, and carries the toasted flavor in the recipe. It’s quite an exciting change, and comes with little extra effort. Thanks for the recipe post!
