Gluten free - dairy free - low refined sugar - nut free - contains egg white
As promised when I shared my Coconut Vanilla Custard recipe, I'm posting this recipe so that you've got a wonderful way to use the egg whites that you didn't need in your custard. I've made this a few times in the past using castor sugar, as all good Macaroon recipes should, or so I thought. I've now made it twice using rapadura sugar and they're great. I hesitate to call these macaroons, though, because they're not really like the traditional ones you may have memories of. But they are a wonderful, chewy, flavourful little biscuit nonetheless and make a great afternoon tea snack. My kids like to have a little something for 'dessert' after dinner, and one of these fits the bill nicely.
Given my chocoholic tendencies, I couldn't resist adding a chocolatey finishing touch to these. The kids agree that it makes them extra tasty, but it's really not required if you'd like a chocolate-free treat (although, I'm not really sure why you would!!).
This makes 36-40 Biccies.
