Diva Dinner Dates Pt. 3: Coconut Macaroons

Whew! So you made it through the appetizer, and your eyes have feasted on the main course, and now you're ready for dessert! For my Diva Dinner Date, I decided to make one of my all time favorite desserts: Macaroons. These little beauties are on healthier than most dessert fare and perfect if you're trying to avoid wheat, since they contain very little. I served mine with gorgeous organic blackberries! My BDFF's loved my macaroons so much, they asked for some to go! Shout out goes to Momma D for inspiring this recipe.

Coconut Macaroons

4 egg whites whipped to soft peaks
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp flour
14 oz shredded coconut


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add egg whites to a stand mixer, or whisk by hand, until they have soft peaks. Then, add the sugar and flour, mixing into the egg whites, followed by the coconut.

On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, spoon 1 tbsp mounds.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until nicely toasted. Using a spatula, transfer to a rack or plate to cool.

Serve with fresh berries.


  1. These were SO delicious! About how many macaroons does the recipe make?

  2. It made around 36, depending on the size you make them!! And don't you know we finished them off... lol.
