Makes only a small batch, but they are very tasty.


1 1/3 cups Coconut
2 tablespoon Flour
1/8 teaspoon Salt
2 large Egg white
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

Original recipe makes 18



1. In small bowl combine coconut, flour, and salt.

2. In second bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, fold in vanilla.

3. Fold egg whites into dry ingredients.

4. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.

5. Bake at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

This recipe was a happy accident. I was baking macaroons and left out the sugar. They were so good without the sugar that I now make them this way on purpose.

These were not what we expected not sweet at all

Nom nom nom. Very good indeed. I love macaroons, and if I knew I could make ones this good at home I would've saved lots of money.

As a diabetic I had to try them. They were delicious and I would definitely make them again.

I thought these were great! We doubled the recipe and made about 30 macaroons. We used sweetened coconut, so the way we made the recipe wasn't completely sugar-free. Based on doubling the recipe, and the 30 macaroons we got out of it, we figured that there are approximately 4.6 grams of sugar per macaroon. Also! We tasted them straight out of the oven and liked them, but a couple hours later, they were even better. Definitely make them a little ahead of time if you can manage it.

Wonderful! I didn't have vanilla extract so I used almond. They are delicious! Hard to believe there is no sugar!
