Author Tessa Fisher


  • 3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut (I prefer Let's Do Organic brand)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 egg white
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup to dark chocolate chips or chopped chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 325 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, place coconut, coconut milk, honey, lime zest, vanilla extract, coconut flour, and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, add egg white and another pinch of salt. Using hand mixer, beat egg white until soft peaks form, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Fold the egg white into the coconut mixture until fully combined.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop out mixture, making a slight indentation with your finger. Place chocolate in indent. Scoop enough mixture into tablespoon again to cover top of macaroon. Don't be afraid to pack the macaroon together a bit into ball form to keep from falling apart once baked. Place on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown, rotating cookie sheet halfway through.
  7. Cool macaroons on wire cooling rack before serving.
