Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 20


  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 Tbsp red beet powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 3 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup good-quality dark chocolate chips, plus a little extra to melt and drizzle on top, if needed and desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Mix the shredded coconut, red beet powder and pinch of sea salt together in a large bowl. Then, mix in the egg whites, raw honey, melted coconut oil and vanilla. Stir well to incorporate.

  3. Next, scoop the mixture into tablespoon-size scoops (helps to push the mixture down inside the tablespoon, so it will hold together) and place on lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until tops and bottom edges are light golden brown.

  4. While macaroons are cooling, melt dark chocolate chips in double boiler over medium-low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and carefully dip the bottom of each macaroon in the melted chocolate. Place back on parchment-lined baking sheet to set. Drizzle any extra melted chocolate on top or melt extra for drizzling on top, if desired.
