Gluten Free Citrus Macaroons

I love macaroons and they are so easy and there is really no point in putting gluten in- they are naturally better without! I often make these while trying to use us left over egg whites (you can use whole eggs- the colour is much better- but boy! do they stick to the tray!)

For every egg white use:
1 c desiccated coconut
1/2 c sugar
zest from a citrus

Put all in a mixing bowl and mix to combine. It doesn’t stick nicely together, it has a very breadcrumb like consistency and needs to be moulded into balls. It will stick into shape it just needs encouragement šŸ™‚

Put on a well greased tray and bake at 180 deg cel for 8-10 minutes. Take then out when they look like this:

Immediately slide them around on the tray- as they cool their bottoms gets sticky and it can get rather messy…
