Yield: 36 cookies
- 2 cups dried, finely shredded coconut Add to list
- 1/3 cup light honey (or use variations - see "Notes") Add to list
- 3 egg whites (or powdered Ener-G Egg Replacer, according to package instructions) Add to list
- 1/2 teaspoon each vanilla and almond extract Add to list
- 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional) Add to list
Preheat oven to 325° F. Combine coconut and honey in a bowl. Add unbeaten egg whites (or substitute), extracts and salt. Drop by teaspoonful into tiny haystack shapes onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until golden. Remove from baking sheets and place on wire racks to cool.
Variations: Honey, maple syrup, Mysticake Fru Lit Juice Concentrates all work well and are equally sweet, though distinctly different in flavors. Rice or barley malt syrup would have very subtle sweetness here.
