Honey Macaroons


2 large egg whites
¼ cup honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups unsweetened shredded coconut
fine sea salt


Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Stir together egg whites, honey, vanilla, and a pinch of salt until combined. Stir in coconut until completely moistened.

Roll coconut mixture into small balls between your hands, then place about 2 inches apart onto baking sheet.

Bake until pale golden in spots, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.

  1. Mmmmm, forwarded this recipe to my baking daughters. It’s perfect; so few ingredients and yet it looks like the result would be so good.

  2. Nice recipe again! I like how it does not utilize white sugar, because I feel that honey is a more natural sweetener. And the honey in the recipe will provide the “stickiness” typical of biting into a macaroon.

    I made these last night with some freshly harvested honey and they were terrific, and so quick and easy to make. I only had sweetened coconut so used that, so they were a bit too sweet, but still good. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Saving this recipe immediately. YUM!
