Coconut Macaroons

I am going to start finding/baking several gluten/dairy free recipes. We started the “Truth Project” with a group from our church and there is a girl that can’t have either. She told me not to worry about finding recipes she can eat, but I am determined, at least most of the time. Someone suggested I try these coconut macaroons. So I gave it a shot and here they are. They tasted amazing, but came out with a really almost spongy texture after baking. Not sure what happened. I tried it twice too. I guess I still have some things to learn. I think it had to do with the agave nectar. I have never done anything with it before this.


6 egg whites
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup agave nectar
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups coconut

Heat the oven to 350. Beat the egg whites and salt until a stiff peak forms. Fold in the agave nectar, vanilla, and coconut. Drop the batter onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake immediately. Continue stirring batter as the agave nectar can settle. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!
