Healthy Chocolate Macaroons

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Macaroons taste just like your favorite traditional macaroon recipe except made refined sugar free and gluten free!

Prep: 10 minCook: 20 minTotal: 30 min
Servings: 12 macaroons 1x



  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Use an electric handheld mixture to beat your egg whites and salt until firm peaks form, about 5 minutes.

  3. Gently and continuously fold the egg whites as you drizzle in the agave nectar and melted butter.
  4. Once incorporated, fold in the shredded coconut.
  5. On a lined baking sheet, use an ice cream scooper to scoop 12 macaroons on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, or until the bottoms and tops are golden brown.
  7. Allow the macaroons to cool for a couple minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer them to a cooling rack.
  8. Place the chocolate and coconut oil in a medium bowl and place in the microwave. I put it in for a minute and a half, stirring every 30 seconds. The chocolate should be silky smooth.
  9. Dip the bottom of each macaroon into the bowl and place them on a piece of parchment paper.

  10. Once they are all dipped, drizzle the remaining chocolate on top of each macaroon.
  11. Sprinkle the tops with flakey salt and place in fridge for about 5 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.
