The recipe

These low-carb chocolate drizzled coconut macaroons boast a slightly crunchy toasted coconut outside and a moist, chewy inside. The chocolate drizzle puts them over the top for flavor. They remind me of mini Mound bars, only tastier. You may want to make a double batch since these cookie have a magical way of disappearing.

 

The inspiration

This recipe has been altered from a recipe for “Chocolate Coated Coconut Kisses” by Faye Levy in her book, Faye Levy’s Sensational Chocolate. I have always loved Faye Levy’s cookbooks and purchased many of them years ago.  I learned so much about cooking by reading her books and preparing her recipes. Many of her recipes became family favorites and her “Chocolate Coated Coconut Kisses” recipe was one of them.  

 

These cookies always had a place on my holiday cookie platters.  Unfortunately, while delicious, Faye’s recipe isn’t low-carb.  With the holidays approaching, I have been craving these cookies so I made some alterations to the recipe to make them low-carb.  I am so happy to be able to enjoy them once again!

How to store Coconut Macaroon Cookies

I like to store these cookies in a single layer in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Be sure that the chocolate is completely solid before covering them so the cover does not stick to the top of the cookies.

 

Can coconut macaroon cookies be frozen?

Yes! You can freeze these Keto Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Macaroons. Simply put them in a freezer safe airtight container and freeze for up to 4 months.

 

If you decide to stack your cookies, adding a sheet of parchment between layers will help keep them from sticking to each other.

Tips and tricks

Be sure to use unsweetened coconut for this recipe. Sweetened coconut would add loads of carbs and make the recipe not keto-friendly anymore.

Be careful about substituting other sweeteners in this recipe. The Pyure blend that I use in this recipe is twice as sweet as sugar. If you try to substitute a less sweet erythritol-based sweetener in this recipe, the erythritol might not dissolve all of the way into the egg whites and may give the cookies a granular texture.

This recipe takes four egg-whites. leaving you with four yolks. If you need an idea for using these leftover egg yolks, check out our creme brûlée recipe which, by design, takes four egg yolks. Get two desserts out of the same four eggs!
