Vegan Coconut Macaroons

Cookie Fest: Part 3

Makes 12 cookies

Look, I’m not going to lie. I don’t know if there is a way to recreate the crunchy, chewy consistency the egg whites give to these cookies. I’ve tried three different methods tonight: agave, coconut milk, water. Nothing worked. The recipe I’m posting is the closest I got but I could really use some pointers when it comes to replacing egg whites in vegan recipes.

  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup water (plus more if needed)
  • 1/2 coconut milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 300 F. Use a non-stick baking sheet.
  2. Mix ingredients together.
  3. Make patties and put on baking sheet. Bake on the top rack until brown on the bottom.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
