Did I mention these were addicting?

Yes, I did mention that. But did I mention that they have only 40 calories apiece?

Well, now I did. Not kidding.

Did I mention I ate two for second breakfast this morning?

It’s the truth.

{Easy, Delicious, Addicting Macaroons}

Ingredients:

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Beat egg whites until peaks form… or your arm feels like it’s going to fall off (in my case). Add sugar a bit at a time, keep whisking with egg whites. Whisk in vanilla and then stir in coconut until well-mixed.

Spoon into level tablespoons and drop onto parchment paper. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Remove when they have turned a golden brown.

*Makes 32 cookies
