Chocolate Macaroons

Here is my easy recipe for chocolate macaroons that I made on the weekend.  I used cacao and lowered the amount of sugar to try and make them a little healthier.

Chocolate Macaroons


2 eggs, separated
½ cup caster sugar
3 cups desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons cacao (or cocoa)


  1. Beat egg whites in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  2. Gradually beat in caster sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until the sugar is dissolved between each addition.
  3. Beat in egg yolks and cacao and then fold in coconut until well combined.
  4. Spoon tablespoons of the coconut mixture on to baking paper lined oven trays.
  5. Cook in a moderately low oven (about 160C) for 20-25 minutes or until macaroons are golden brown.
  6. Cool on a tray before serving or storing in an airtight container.
Note:   Cooking times may vary depending on oven, my macaroons cooked in less time.
