Chocolate Drizzled Cherry Macaroons


Want a sweet treat that won’t break the “sugar bank?” Look no further! We’ve combined the natural sweetness of coconut with dark chocolate and a surprise twist of dried cherries for a bite of heaven. By making the macaroons small and decreasing the amount of sugar, we have created an occasional indulgence that will satisfy your sweet tooth with one bite.

20 cookies
3 large Natural Grocers® Brand Organic Pasture-Raised Eggs, whites only
1⁄3 cup Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Coconut Sugar
2 cups Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Finely Shredded Coconut
2 tablespoons Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Unsweetened Red Tart Cherries, roughly chopped
  ½ of a Natural Grocers Brand 85% Cocoa Organic Extreme Dark Chocolate bar, (4 squares)

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Whip the egg whites to a stiff peak, 3-5 minutes.

3. Fold the coconut sugar, coconut, and cherries into the egg whites. (save the yolks for scrambled eggs or Natural Grocers Quick Hollandaise Sauce)

4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and using a tablespoon, scoop out individual macaroons onto the baking sheet. Using dampened hands, form each scoop into a mound.

5. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown, then remove and place on a wire rack to cool.

6. While the macaroons are cooling, melt the chocolate squares in a double boiler or microwave.

7. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the macaroons. Allow the chocolate to set before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
