A four-ingredient, easy, healthy dessert!
I see a lot of friends adjusting to new summer schedules with their kids – and along with that comes the neverending quest for healthy sweet treats. Plenty of frozen goodies to come, but if you don’t mind firing up the oven for 15 minutes, this 4 ingredient twist on a regular macaroon makes for a great little snack cookie.
3 dried pineapple rings (about 1/2 cup)great little treat.
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut (unsweetened)
Preheat oven to 325. Cut pineapple rings into 3 pieces, then pulse in a food processor until very finely chopped (will clump together a bit). Beat egg whites with a whisk until frothy, then whisk in the honey. Stir in coconut and pineapple and mix until well distributed.
Using a cookie dough scoop, pack mixture firmly into balls and place on parchment or silpat-lined cookie sheet. (Mixture will be crumbly when raw; just shape with fingers as needed.) Bake for 14-16 minutes, until starting to become golden brown. Let cool completely before eating.
