Coconut is a highly nutritious food that can be very beneficial in a gluten free kitchen. Coconut is naturally gluten free, contains healthy oil, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. My Coconut Macaroons are made of 3 simple ingredients: coconut flakes, honey, and egg whites. So simple you could make them at home. Perfect for those short on time in the kitchen!
Ingredients
  Unsweetened shredded coconut 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Egg whites 6
  Honey 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Blueberries 1 Tablespoon
  Nuts 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Blueberries, Cranberries, Almonds, Raisins)
  Cranberries 1 Tablespoon
  Almonds 1 Tablespoon
  Raisins 1 Tablespoon
Directions

Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the coconut, honey, and egg whites in a large bowl. Stir in any add-ins you want to use, blueberries, cranberries, almonds, raisins. Spoon onto the cookie sheet in little balls and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

A wonderful dessert-time standby, coconut macaroons with their crackly outer layer and chewy inside makes for a real traditional holiday treat. Relatively simple to make, coconut macaroons are gluten-free treats that can be made more healthy by substituting sugar and whole eggs with honey and egg whites.
