Walnut Macaroon Cookies
2 cups Walnuts (24)
3 Egg Whites (0)
3 Tbs. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes (12)
1/2 tsp. Coconut cake flavouring
1/2 cup sweetener (any equivalent of 1/2 cup sugar)
Process Walnuts (blender, food processor or the ever ready coffee grinder), add coconut flakes after the walnuts are processed and blend well. In a separate bowl whip Egg Whites into fluffy peaks, then beat in Coconut Flavoring and sweetener. Carefully combine nut mixture with egg mixture.
Blend well. Using a small scoop or spoon, place 30 to 36 small mounds of mixture on a pam coated cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for fifteen minutes. Serve warm or cool.
I estimate each cookie to have the following: 53 calories: 1 carb, 1 protein, 5 fat
As soon as they are cooled, I place mine in a crystal cookie jar — they seem to develop a nice moistness.
