Coconut has many health benefits. Coconut can help prevent obesity, improve your heart, high in dietary fiber, low glycemic, reduces sweet cravings, improves digestion and is a quick energy boost. In addition, coconut contains NO trans fat, is gluten-free, non toxic, and hypoallergenic. I decided to make some macaroons and wanted them to be very healthy. To cut the fat in half, I used half coconut and half oats. Following is the recipe I used.
10 egg whites
2 cups shredded coconut
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar (I used a little less)
1/2 tsp salt
Heat oven to 350. Spray baking sheet with Pam and set aside.
Stir in egg whites, coconut, oats, vanilla, sugar, and salt in a bowl until well blended.
Drop tablespoons of mixture on to baking sheets, half-inch apart.
Bake macaroons until light golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool.
