Chocolate Coconut Macaroons
These healthier, refined sugar free coconut macaroons are the perfect holiday treat! I've dressed up a basic recipe with peppermint and dark chocolate, but feel free to sub your favorite flavor -- vanilla, orange or almond would all be wonderful additions to these delicious Christmas cookies!

Add egg whites and honey to a bowl, and use a whisk to beat the mixture until it becomes light and foamy. The idea isn't to form peaks, like a meringue, but just to make the mixture very foamy. This should take 2-3 minutes.
Add in the peppermint extra (or other flavoring desired), and then the coconut. Use a spoon to fully coat the coconut.
Using a rounded tablespoon or a cookie scoop, pack the coconut mixture into a ball shape, and place on a lined baking tray. This recipe makes about 20 tablespoon sized cookies.
In the Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven, set the oven to BAKE/REHEAT at 350 degrees, and bake the cookies for 12 minutes, until the cookies are lightly browned on top.
To bake these in a conventional oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and bake for 16-18 minutes, until the cookies are lightly browned.
