Healthy Coconut Macaroons that are lightened up since it's made with egg whites. Perfect for those days you want something light and sweet.
Some of my favorite Coconut Macaroon memories are from Ocean City, NJ. It's where my family vacations every single year for a week. Along the boardwalk there is a famous macaroon shop called George's Candies. They have all sorts of flavors, but my all time favorite are the classic coconut macaroons.
Just imagine eating creamy coconut macaroons walking along the boardwalk and listening to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing against one another. It's a memory that is so dear to me and one that I will never forget.
I can't recall a single year when my family didn't come home without a box of Coconut Macaroons. These healthy coconut macaroons don't exactly taste like George's Candies because they are lightened up and gluten-free. They do however taste unbelievably good. I'm surprised egg whites is all you really need.
I can confidently say I have about 20 people to vouch for me. The Coconut Macaroons are the perfect summer treat that comes together within minutes and relatively guilt-free, just don't go too crazy. Enjoy!
