Skinny Coconut Macaroons

It's beginning to look alot like  Christmas in my house, we put up our decorations this weekend! Not everything is up yet, because we are getting the house painted inside, so I have to wait to put my wall decorations up.  I so love this time of year, I don't like the cold but I love the holidays, especially Christmas, not for the gifts, but for the true meaning!  Jesus is the reason for the season!
 
I love making Christmas treats, I love eating Coconut Macaroons  that's what I call them, not sure if that is the correct name.  I made them nice and healthy, and they were delicious.  So I thought why not make some green and red ones for the holiday! They came out really good!

 

Skinny Coconut Macaroons 
Ingredients
3 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 light brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten

Directions
Set oven to 400, in bowl combine coconut with warm water, and coconut oil.  Stir well.  In another bowl combine eggs and light brown sugar, mix thoroughly.  Pour egg mixture into coconut mixture and stir well.  Use small scooper, drop cookie on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
Want to color them. I used coloring for icing, I like those better!  You can use food coloring also!

  3. Very festive and they look delicious either way (w/or w/out the coloring). These would be fun party favors too.

  4. I love anything with coconut, so I just pinned this recipe! :) Love that you made them festive for Christmas too! My hubby is not a coconut fan, so I'm only afraid if I make them that I'll end up eating them all :)

  5. Those cookies remind me of treats that my husbands grandma makes! They are bright green and will turn your tongue the same color!

  6. My husband would go nuts over these. Seems like it's a pretty easy thing to bake as well - gotta love that! I've been looking for something to bring to an upcoming holiday party, I might just have to try these coconut goodies for it.

  23. HI Pamela! I have missed your smiling face! I love coconut treats. These look great - I think I would leave them white and dip the bottom in chocolate - what do you think?
