Servings: 12 macaroons

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Lay the coconut on a baking tray, and place in the oven for 5 minutes to toast.

3. In a mixing bowl, add the egg whites and vanilla. Using a hand mixer, mix the eggs until they are frothy and thick.

4. Add in the coconut and maple syrup and mix until well-combined.

5. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes. Place on a cooling rack.

For the chocolate drizzle

1. You can either melt the chocolate in the microwave or use a double-boiler.

2. To melt in the microwave, place 1 cup of chocolate chips in a glass measuring cup with the coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is melted. Stir after every 30 seconds in the microwave.

3. To melt using a double-boiler, place a pot on the stove and fill 1/4 of the way with water. Place a glass heat-proof bowl over top, ensuring it doesn’t touch the water. Bring the water to a simmer.

4. Place the chocolate and coconut oil in the glass bowl, and stir until the chocolate is melted.

5. Dip the bottom of the macaroons in chocolate, and place on a piece of parchment paper. Drizzle the tops using a spoon. Place in the fridge or freezer for 20-30 mins for the chocolate to harden.
