A Proper Healthy Dessert

Protein coconut macaroons are delicious and these ones are good for you too.

Imagine crossing fresh coconut with a soft vanilla cookie and meringue and also imagine this as a healthy protein filled dessert or snack as well, that is exactly what these coconut macaroons are like.

Just in case you have never had the pleasure of tasting macaroons, they are an explosion of coconut flavored, cakey goodness and a dessert lover’s dream, they can be yours too as there is a way to make them healthy as well.

With a little bit of crunch and a touch of chocolate these protein macaroons are delicious! Enjoy them as a delicious mid-afternoon snack, they are easily customizable as well and some people coat their macaroons in chocolate.

You can do that as who doesn’t love chocolate? Or you can add just a hint of chocolate to the top which is my personal preference.


  1. 1/4 Cup liquid egg whites.
  2. 1 Cup of vanilla whey protein powder.
  3. 1/4 Cup of granulated erythritol (or granulated low-calorie sweetener of choice).
  4. 7/8 Cup of grated coconut.

Dried cranberries can also be added for additional flavor.


  1. With an electric whisker or standing blender, beat your egg whites to soft peaks (like mixing meringue).
  2. Once the egg whites have become fluffy, add the rest of the ingredients into the mixture and use a spatula to fold them gently until everything is well combined.
  3. Divide the mix into four blobs and put them on a non stick cookie tray. Bake at 320 Farenheit (160 degrees celsius) for around 12-15 minutes. It is best to check on the macaroons after 10 minutes and remove them when they start to brown on the top, they will end up very dry if you overbake them.
  4. For more decadence to your macaroon you can melt a couple of squares (roughly 20g) of dark chocolate and drizzle over the top of the macaroons once it has melted. If you would prefer the chocolate on the bottom you can dunk the macaroons in the melted mixture to give them a chocolate skirt.
  5. Put the macaroons in the fridge to cool for a couple of hours before consuming.

So delicious I took some to have with me after the gym last week.
