Anyone have a 3 ingredient Coconut Macaroon recipe?

I LOVE Jennies coconut macaroons but they are a bit expensive. I was hoping to alternate buying them and making my own.

However, I've searched about 100 internet sites and cannot find a recipe with just the 3 ingredients they use: Unsweetened coconut, honey, and egg whites. Does anyone have such a recipe?

Thank you!

I think you could modify a recipe --- sweeten with honey instead of sugar.

If there isn't any flour in that macaroon you like, then I'm assuming it VERY chewy?

Here's a good recipe:

[url="http://kraftfoods.com/main.aspx?s=recipe&m=recipe/knet_recipe_display&u1=keyword&u2=macaroon&u3=**1*22&wf=9&recipe_id=64373"]http://kraftfoods.com/main.aspx?s=recipe...recipe_id=64373[/url]

or go to Kraftfoods.com and search for coconut macaroon

so - you'd have to play with the amount of honey and egg whites. Without the flour, I'm not sure what consistency you are going for. Obviously, omit the almond flavor...I make mine with no flavoring anyway. The salt just helps to boost flavors, probably unnecessary, though maybe it'd make the taste a bit bland.

Just a side question...

are Jennie's macaroons safe for PA/TNA? My son eats coconut but I've never bought macaroons.

Thanks.

Ajgauthier, I'm not a very good cook so I wouldn't dare to try and modify a recipe! I did, though, google "how much honey equals 1/4 cup sugar" but didn't have any success.
I'm avoiding flour now and that's yet another reason I love these so much. And yes, they are melt-in-your-mouth chewy. Rather addicting actually. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Lj, I called Jennies a month or so ago and was told that they are safe for people who are allergic to nuts. I didn't, however, specifically ask about cross-contamination issues. Whatever he said made me comfortable enough to try them. But in case your comfort zone is tighter, I can get you the toll free number if you'd like.

Donni, thank you! This recipe sounds like it's just what I'm looking for. And thanks for the measurement conversions too. I checked that website and I'll probably try one of the other recipes too (Lucy's).

Thanks again!

I looked at Lucy's recipe, too. I like the ease of putting it in muffin tins. Be sure to let us know which one you tried, etc. Thanks!
