Delicious Coconut Macaroons are a classic dessert loved by many for their sweet coconut flavor and simple preparation. This quintessential recipe is a much-beloved treat, taking only minutes to prepare, and can be found in almost any home pantry.



2 large egg whites, at room temperature
3 T. monk fruit sweetener or erythritol
1 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
½ t. pure vanilla extract


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or piece of parchment paper.

    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with a hand-held mixer until soft peaks form. Slowly add in the monk fruit sweetener, a teaspoon at a time, and continue whipping until firm peaks form.

    1. Gently fold in shredded coconut and vanilla extract. 

    1. Using a small cookie scoop, drop portions of the coconut mixture straight onto the prepared baking sheet. You should get 8-10 medium-sized coconut macaroons.

    1. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the macaroons are golden brown around the edges. Remove from oven and place baking sheet on a cooling rack to cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
