‘Anzac’ Macaroons – unrefined sugar free, dairy free, grain free
Makes minimum 15 cookies
4 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar (or use baking powder 1 tsp)
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats

2 cups shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a bowl whisk the egg whites until foamy Add the cream of tartar and rice malt syrup whisk until the egg whites are stiff.
Fold in the cinnamon, oats and coconut. (If the mixture is runny add more coconut, a tablespoon at a time – is should be runnier than a cookie dough, but spoonable).
Spoon teaspoonfuls of the batter on baking sheets lined with non-stick baking paper, 2 cm apart.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned and set. Drizzle tops with a little rice malt syrup. Leave to cool completely and store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
These cookies can also be baked and frozen in ziplock bags.
