These healthy eating macaroons are sweet, healthy and perfectly proportioned. They are also amazing with or without the chocolate.
Desiccated coconut is the coconut flesh, which has been dried and shredded, retaining many of its nutrients such as high levels of fibre, manganese and selenium. It’s naturally sweet so it’s best to purchase unsweetened varieties. It’s also a rick source of plant proteins.
Egg whites are used as the binding agent in this recipe. These are high in protein and low in fat. They also increase the volume whilst keeping calories low. When combining egg white with dry ingredients such as flour or coconut, I always find it best to fold the egg whites into the dry mixture rather then folding the dry ingredients into the egg whites. This keeps maximum volume in your bake.
These are easily made nut free by swapping the almond meal with extra coconut.


  • 2 egg whites
  • Powdered stevia equivalent to ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla essence
  • 120g dark chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 180°C
  • Beat egg whites to stiff peaks.
  • Add stevia and beat until dissolved.
  • In a separate bowl, dry-whisk coconut and almond meal until well combined.
  • Gently fold egg whites into dry mixture 1/3 at a time.
  • Using a teaspoon, shape into ball and place on baking tray covered with baking paper.

Bake approximately 15minutes until beginning to brown lightly.
Healthy BakingRemove from oven and let stand at least 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
Melt chocolate. Dip the base of each macaroon in the chocolate and place on baking paper. Pipe or drizzle remaining chocolate over the top. May need to be placed in the fridge to set.
