Day 95: Coconut Chocolate Macaroons

Yield: 16 cookies
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min

2 egg whites
½ cup granulated sugar
pinch salt
¼ tsp vanilla (or almond extract)
¼ cup flour
1 ½ cup shredded coconut
48 chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325F
2. In a pot on the stove over med heat, heat up the eggs, sugar and salt. Make sure to stay with it and keep stirring so the eggs don’t cook and just heat until heated through.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients and chill in the fridge until cool to the touch
4. Make a 1 inch ball out of the batter. The batter will be sticky. I used a small ice cream scoop, but a spoon will be fine, and put in the center 3 chocolate chips. Place on a cookie sheet. They wont spread
5. Bake for 15 min until they aren’t shiny and a little brown on the bottom. Don’t over bake or they will be dry and hard to eat. Enjoy!

Notes: My mom has been craving macaroons, and I was going to visit her, so I thought, what better than to make her favorite cookie! I would for sure add more chocolate to the centers if you want a real bang, but otherwise, these turned out perfect. You don’t want them too brown on the outside or they will be way to dry, so watch them, and watch out, these are so yummy!
