Ingredients
  • Makes about 25-30 cookies
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 cups + 6 tbsp (300 g) powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 tbsp dried coconut flakes
  • 12 tbsp ground walnuts or almonds
  • 2 oz (50 g) chocolate chips
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 F (150 C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whip egg whites until foamy with a mixer and gradually add the sugar and vanilla extract whipping the whole time. The meringue is done when it is not runny and when you can hold the bowl upside down and none of it drops off.
  3. Using a metal spoon, lightly fold in the coconut flakes, ground walnuts and chocolate chips. Spoon onto the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake the meringue cookies for about 15 minutes or until they get a pale coffee color. Remove them gently from the baking sheet and let them cool completely before storing.

Thanks for sharing! I have made them today and they taste great!! But they cracked on the surface and became much thinner than yours. I used the kitchen scale and did everything according to the recipe. Should I beat the meringue longer next time or add more nuts/coconut flakes? Thanks!
Re:

maybe just beat the meringue more and try to fold gently all the ingredients so it doesn't deflate.. no need for more nuts.
