Ingredients

For 2 Dozen(s)

Recipe

  • 2 organic egg whites
  • 1/2 cup(s) maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon(s) brown rice syrup or honey
  • 1 pinch(es) sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoon(s) all-purpose unbleached white flour, or brown rice flour (for a gluten free macaroon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground cardamom

Cardamom Maple Mini Macaroons Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the egg whites, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until just warm, about 1 minute. Add the coconut, flour, vanilla, and cardamom and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture just begins to sizzle and is slightly dry, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes. Using a teaspoon and your fingers, form the dough into 24 small mounds on the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool completely before serving.
  5. Variation: For a more decadent dessert, dip the macaroons in chocolate. Chop your favorite dark chocolate and place it in a dry metal or glass bowl and set it over a pan of gently simmering hot water (or use a double boiler if you have one). Stir the chocolate constantly until just melted, then remove it from the heat.
  6. Now for the fun part: Dip the macaroons into the melted chocolate, then place them on a pan or plate lined with wax or parchment paper.
  7. Chill in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens, then enjoy!
