Delicious coconut treats with honey & orange hints.
Ingredients
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tbsp liquid honey
  • 2 tsp orange juice
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (this is optional, I liked the consistency better when I put this in, without works)
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla or extract (I used fresh vanilla bean that I got in Hawaii, not necessary though!)
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp pink salt (regular salt is fine, put a bit less)
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone lining.
  2. In a medium bowl add your egg whites, honey, orange juice, zest, vanilla, and salt, whisk/blend on high until frothy, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  3. Stir in your shredded coconut and coconut flour.
  4. I let it sit for a few minutes for the coconut to absorb some of the liquid, then take a small handful and create balls in your hands with some pressure so they hold together, layer on your baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges brown, watch carefully they bake quickly.
