Skylar’s Coconut Macaroon Trees
I love it that my Daughter loves to help in the kitchen! This is one of her favorite cookie recipes – we don’t eat sweets and we are essentially a grain free house, so this is one of our healthy treats. My daughter modified this recipe based on a recipe she found from Martha Stewart. This version is very low in sugar, but you can easily use pure stevia extract to lower the sugar content even more.
- 2 ½ Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- ⅛ cup sugar
- 2 Tbsp Baking Stevia (this is a stevia sugar blend available in the baking aisle of most supermarkets.)
- 2 Large Egg Whites
- 5 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
- Pinch of Salt
- Confectioners’ sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350°
In a large bowl, combine coconut, sugar, baking stevia, egg whites, vanilla extract, and salt and mix well.
Shape into tree shapes and place on a cookie sheet* about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until the tops and undersides are golden and toasty.
Let cool on a wire rack.
Once cooled completely, right before serving, dust with confectioners’ sugar.
*We love to use our Pampered Chef Stoneware for these cookies.
