monday macaroons

Mondays call for a little something sweet, don’t they? I was cleaning up the kitchen when I came across a ridiculous amount of coconut. That could mean only one thing, macaroons! These are the easiest, tastiest, and healthiest treats I know how to make. I might throw a handful of chocolate chips  into the next batch.

Macaroon Monday

What you need:
3 large egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 14-ounce package sweetened shredded coconut (about 5 cups)

Macaroon Monday

What to do:
Preheat oven to 325° F. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk together the egg whites, sugar, vanilla, and salt until glossy and the sugar is mostly almost dissolved.

Fold in the coconut until evenly combined.

Drop the batter in mounds (about 2 tablespoons each) onto baking sheets.

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

  1. They look beautiful! If only I liked coconut. What’s the difference between these and sandwich macaroons? Just different varieties?

    • They’re different types of cookies. The French sandwich cookie is “macaron” and the British “macaroon” is a coconut or almond based cookie, like the ones I made.
