Five Minute Coconut Macaroons




Do you agree that Bill Granger makes you feel like you're a really good cook? His recipes are so simple to follow - I whipped up (as in prep took me five minutes) these recently. See below for the easy-peasy recipe.

Coconut Macaroons
2 egg whites
115g caster (superfine) sugar
150g shredded coconut
100g roughly chopped macadamia nuts (I didn't have these - so used almonds instead)
1 teaspoon lime zest
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Mix together the egg whites, caster sugar, coconut, nuts and lime zest in a bowl (you may need to use your hands). Shape tablespoons of the mixture in to mounds on paper-lined baking trays. Bake 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on trays. Makes 20.
Do what I did, and enjoy three too many with a cup of tea.

  6. I must try these out. 5 minutes you say? They looks so delicious Briar.
    We just got back from Australia. Had 1.5 days in Sydney so we couldn't do as much as we had hoped. Love Sydney!
    Hope 2011 is off to a good start for you!

  7. Maybe one minute over 5 minutes if you are a perfectionist - but I am a bit slap dash in the kitchen! So glad you enjoyed your holiday Janis!
