If you’ve tried my delicious Vanilla Bean Keto Ice Cream, you’ve now got 5 egg whites with no home.

Never fear, because these sugar free keto coconut macaroons are super quick and easy, provide healthy fats, freeze well and also complement the ice cream perfectly!

Better yet, they come together in only 15 minutes, so once your ice cream is in the freezer you can whip these up in no time and you’ve got dessert for the next week sorted.

Ingredients for Keto Coconut Macaroons

I have had a major surplus of egg yolks recently, and not because I have been baking a lot with the egg whites.

My husband has recently discovered he LOVES whiskey sours, and so has been making many. Maybe a few too many.

This means I have a bowl of egg yolks every couple of days, which = lots of delicious keto ice cream!

I started buying carton egg whites to help combat this – and then ended up with too many egg whites. Luckily, this Keto Macaroons recipe is simple and easy to whip up and make use of extra egg whites.

To make this Keto Coconut Macaroons, you will need:

  • Dessicated coconut
  • Egg whites
  • Xylitol
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • Coconut flour

Substitutions and Ingredient tips

Just like the ice cream, I use Xylitol as my preferred sweetener and purchase it from Amazon. I use Now Foods brand and you can purchase the same one here.

If you are wondering what sweetener is right for you, do a bit of research and trial a few. I wrote about why I use Xylitol here – it’s the only keto sweetener that acts closely like sugar in keto baking.

Other than that, all the ingredients are very simple! You can use vanilla extract, vanilla bean paste or leave it out if you don’t have it.

One extra thing you can do – drizzle a little melted dark chocolate over the Keto Macaroons once they’ve cooled! Keto chocolate macaroons are next level delicious.

Tips for making Keto Coconut Macaroons

  1. TOAST THE COCONUT Preheat the oven to 180C / 356F  .Prepare two large baking trays with greaseproof paper and spread the coconut evenly across the trays. Place in the oven for 5 minutes to lightly toast the coconut, removing when just starting to brown. 
  2. COMBINE INGREDIENTS Meanwhile, combine the egg whites, xylitol, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Whisk for 1 – 2 minutes until lightly fluffy and frothy.
  3. COMBINE COCONUT AND EGGS Remove the coconut from the oven and let it cool slightly. Combine with the egg whites and fold through until all coconut is uniformly moistened. If the mixture appears a little too sticky to form a ball at this stage, add coconut flour 1/2 tablespoon at a time. Be aware the coconut flour is very absorbent so add with caution.  
  4. ROLL THE COOKIE DOUGH With wet hands, roll the cookie dough into tablespoon sized balls. These don’t spread so you can fit 12 on a tray easily. 
  5. BAKE Return the cookies to the oven and cook for 12 – 15 minutes until golden to your liking – I like them on the crispier side so usually get closer to 15 minutes. 

Storage tips

  • Fridge: These store perfectly in the fridge. To be honest I’ve had them in the fridge for weeks and they still taste great, but it will depend on the freshness of your eggs to begin with.
  • Freezer: If I can get to the egg whites before he does, I whip up a batch of these Keto Coconut Macaroons and keep them in the freezer. They thaw really quickly and are super delicious cold or warm.
