Preparation Time: 10 minutes
- 2 cups dried coconut, shredded or flaked
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, whisk together coconut, sugar, flour, zest and salt. Stir in egg whites, butter and almond extract. Fold in chocolate chips.
On parchment lined baking sheets, place rounded tablespoon-sized balls of dough approximately 2″ apart. Gently roll the balls of dough for a more uniform shape.
Bake for 20 minutes or until they are firm to the touch and lightly browned on the bottom. Let cool before serving.
