Protein Coconut Macaroons

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup egg whites
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  3. 10 drops of liquid stevia (I used NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia; you could also use 1 packet of powdered stevia.)
  4. 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used 1 packet of Perfect Fit vanilla brown rice protein powder)
  5. 1 cup dried, unsweetened shredded coconut
  6. Pinch of ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 300° F. Whisk together egg whites, stevia, and maple syrup in a medium-sized bowl. Add protein powder and shredded coconut and stir until combined. Use a tablespoon to scoop batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 22 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before transferring to a sealed container for storage.
