  • 14 oz sweetened shredded coconut (I usually use BAKER'S brand)
  • 6 tbsp almond meal (I usually grind whole almonds in the food processor)
  • 1 tbsp matzoh meal
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Whisk together egg whites, almond meal, matzoh meal, vanilla, and salt. 
  • Add coconut and stir to combine.  It can be hard to get it well mixed so don't hesitate to use your hands if necessary.
  • Mold tablespoons of dough into a tablespoon measuring spoon and carefully slide them onto a cookie sheet covered in a silicon mat or parchment paper.  This will result in little domes.  The cookies don't spread so they can be placed close together.  
  • Bake for 20 minutes 
  • Remove from the cookie sheet immediately and cool completely on a wire rack.  The cookies won't brown except for slightly on the bottom and edges.
  • Melt chocolate chips and drizzle chocolate over the cookies
