Mean Clean Coconut Macaroons

I love a macaroon! So I had to come up with this mean, super clean version to nurture that love. I am so glad I did.

Feeds: Makes 10 – 11 macaroons

Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 100g Shredded Coconut
  • 2 Tbsp Tapioca flour
  • 2 Eggs, whites only
  • 20g Coconut oil, melted
  • 20g Raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 Tsp vanilla powder
  • Pinch sea salt


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Combine the shredded coconut, tapioca flour, vanilla and salt
  • Whisk the egg whites until they become stiff
  • Fold the dry ingredients in to the egg whites followed by 1/2 of the coconut oil
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and grease with a little coconut oil
  • Dollop 10 – 11 tablespoon’s of the mixture on to the paper to form the macaroons
  • Cook in the oven for 15 minutes
  • While the macaroons are cooking combine the 2nd half of the coconut oil with the cacao powder and mix to a runny consistency.
  • Remove macaroons from the oven and allow to cool before drizzling with the cacao and coconut mixture to decorate.

Top tip: For extra sweetness, try adding a small amount of stevia to both components. You can also play with adding flavours, such as:

Lemon – add zest and juice of half a lemon to the mixture

Lime – add zest and juice of half a lime to the mixture

Winter spice – add a pinch each of cinnamon and nutmeg
