Having a craving for cake on Sunday afternoon, I thought I’d give this a shot, knowing how simple Coconut Macaroons are. And this is the end result. While they would probably be even better with the bases dipped in dark chocolate, they did a great job of satisfying the cake cravings at only 1.6g of carbs per macaroon!
200g Dessicated Coconut
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp Ground Almonds
Place all the ingredients except the coconut into a bowl and whisk until fairly stiff.
Fold in the coconut.
Use a soup spoon to scoop out the macaroon mix onto a baking try covered in grease proof paper. I made 10.
Place in an oven at 160 Celsius for 15-20mins.
Remove when golden brown and leave to cool.
When cooled, you may want to dip the bottoms in melted dark chocolate.
