Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  • Place the top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking sheet and set aside. 
  • Using a hand mixer, briskly beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the honey, vanilla, coconut, and salt into the egg whites with a spatula until thoroughly combined. Do not overwork, but it may require a few folds for the ingredients to start to incorporate with one another.
  • Scoop heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving plenty of space in between to prevent overcrowding.  
  • Transfer the baking sheet into the oven and bake until the cookies become golden brown on top and around the edges, around 12-14 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
