Which situation do you run into more often, having leftover egg whites or egg yolks? In my case, I often have leftover egg whites because I use egg yolks for dishes like Chicken Karaage and Kakiage Don.
One night I happened to have one egg white leftover and I remembered my friend Sissi’s Easiest Chewy Coconut Cookies recipe on her blog With a Glass. Her recipe requires just three ingredients: egg whites, sugar, and shredded unsweetened coconut. It just so happens that I had everything in my kitchen. And in less than 30 minutes…

Unbelievably easy and DELICIOUS coconut macaroons!
Since then I got hooked and started making more coconut macaroons including chocolate covered ones.
My husband who is not into coconut snacks said these chocolate covered coconut macaroons are “surprisingly” delicious. The best one I made so far was the coconut macaroons dipped in semisweet chocolate from Scharffen Berger. Ohhh I ate more than I should (absolutely no self-control!). I shared them with my next-door neighbor and she raved about those macaroons as well! If you love coconut snacks, these are simply PHENOMENAL!
If you don’t have egg whites available, then crack a fresh egg and use the leftover egg yolks to make one of the following recipes:
To write this post, I did a little research on coconut macaroons and found out that many recipes require sweetened condensed milk. Sissi’s recipe does not use sweetened condensed milk and it worked perfectly for me as I don’t usually have it in my pantry.
Also, this recipe uses unsweetened shredded coconut instead of sweetened one. If you are going to use sweetened one, please adjust the amount of sugar. Unsweetened shredded coconut is available here online.
I wrote this recipe PER ONE EGG WHITE, so you can multiply the rest of ingredient amount according to how much egg whites you have. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
