Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 ripe medium-sized banana
  • Whites of one large egg
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add flaked coconut to the bowl of a food processor. Process until the flakes are in small, fine pieces. Add banana, egg whites, vanilla extract, and salt and process again until all ingredients are well-combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Remove the blade from the food processor and stir in mini chocolate chips.
  • Using a 1 1/2" cookie scoop (or a spoon), pack mixture into scoop and scoop cookies, placing evenly-spaced on prepared baking sheet. The macaroons won't spread much at all, so they can be placed relatively close together.
  • Bake for 21-24 minutes, or until the bottom edges and outsides of macaroons are golden-brown and macaroons are set.

Notes

Make sure you pack each scoop/spoonful of the macaroon mixture tightly into the scoop or spoon to ensure the mixture holds together.
