Gorgeous melt in the mouth 1 Syn Each Coconut Macaroons that take minutes to make!

Lots of people are a little unsure when it comes to whisking egg whites.

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means. 

I would highly recommend an electric whisk for this if you don’t want to be standing for hours getting no where fast. You can pick one up on Amazon quite cheaply.

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

The whites need to be so stiff you can hold the bowl above your head without getting egg on your face!

We’re lucky enough to have a few chickens so we have our own fresh eggs every day.

These 1 Syn Each Coconut Macaroons are a sweet treat that’s practically guilt free.

Just one word of warning. When you whisk egg whites make sure you are using a clean, dry, grease free bowl and whisk. If they’re not clean and dry the egg whites won’t whisk.

What is Sukrin?

Sukrin make a range of sugar substitutes, that are all natural, that are free from calories and carbohydrates. And most importantly for us they don’t have that nasty aftertaste and they are syn free. Which makes them perfect for these 1 Syn Each Coconut Macaroons.


They do a granulated sugar replacement, a brown sugar replacement and an icing sugar replacement. You can use them all just as you would their ‘normal’ counterparts and since discovering Sukrin we won’t use anything else.

Sukrin Gold is the brown sugar alternative, and is available on Amazon.

Sukrin 1 is the granulated sugar replacement, and is also available over on Amazon.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

  1. I have a sugar grinder and was wondering if it’s possible to grind the sukrin 1 to make a diabetic friendly caster sugar?

  2. I have just made these. They taste lovely but go soft and chewy as soon as they cool. I wont bother with these again.

  3. Hia! Is the oven temperature at degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit? I baked them at 160 C and burned them black. The insides were yummy though

    1. Hi Michelle
      It’s a fan oven and the temperature given is in °C. Some ovens are ‘faster’ so they will cook food quicker than the recipes suggest. My oven is fast, I usually have to drop it by around 10 degrees, or cook food lower for longer. 🙂

    1. Hi Gemma
      The mixture makes 13 macaroons, so you’ll need to pipe or spoon 13 little blobs onto the tray. It’s easier to start small, make 13, then go back to add any remaining mixture to each one so that they’re an even size. 🙂

    1. Hi Glenys
      These macaroons are best enjoyed straight away, as they can be susceptible to moisture. You could store in an airtight container, then ‘refresh’ them in the oven for a few minutes to restore their crispy texture. Hope that helps! 🙂
