The search for the perfect cookie

Since we’ve sworn off nearly everything deemed unhealthy (sugar, flour, you name it), the other captain has really been missing his cookies. I’ve been doing a lot of experimentation and have finally found a recipe that seems to satisfy his cravings. These are also great dipped into some melted cocoa. I found this pure, organic, sugar-free cocoa powder.

Coconut Macaroons

1-1/4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

Dash of teaspoon cinnamon

2 egg whites, beaten

1 teaspoon raw honey or  5- 10 drops of stevia

Beat egg whites very stiff, fold in honey and continue beating. Fold in shredded coconuts.

Drop from a teaspoon onto parchment paper. You will want to mold them into a desirable shape as they won’t change shape in the oven. Bake 30-40 minutes at 250 degrees fahrenheit. Remove from paper while still slightly warm. They should be light brown on the bottom. If they fall apart you will need to continue baking them. Makes 5-10 macaroons.
