These coconut macaroons are not only delicious, but good for you! Coconuts have natural sweeteners, so make ure that you use unsweetened shredded coconut, since we will be adding some sugar to the mixture. Without further adieu, let's get started!

Step 1: Ingredients

Step 2: Toasting the Coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the shredded coconut onto a baking sheet to toast it. This gives the macaroon a flavor even more coconutty! :-) You can omit this step, but it helps bring out the coconut flavor. Toast until just starting to color, then remove and let cool for a few minutes.

Step 3: Making the Egg Mixture
