The French have le macaron, the crunchy, pastel-colored sandwich cookies you see in the most upscale bakeries. Though tasty, they’re nothing like an American macaroon. You know the macaroon as a light-and-airy coconut delight. But this recipe has even more pride than that with its cherry-pie-like flavor which is baked to perfection and then dipped into dark chocolate.
¾ cup egg white liquid
½ cup almond milk
1 scoop whey protein powder (confetti, cake batter or vanilla flavors work best)
1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1 ½ cup finely shredded coconut
Cherry-vanilla stevia to taste
½ cup dark chocolate chips
- In a small bowl, combine everything except the chocolate.
- Drop a spoonful of batter on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 F for 10 minutes.
- Let cool while you melt the chocolate chips.
- Dip macaroons into melted chocolate and munch away!
