How to make it

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the coconut, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the flour, salt, 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the cayenne.
  • Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave on high in 15-second bursts, stirring between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Add the vanilla and egg whites to the coconut mixture.
  • Use your hands to mix together until all the coconut mixture is moistened.
  • Add the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly.
  • Drop by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • A small cookie or ice cream scoop works well if you want very round balls.
  • Alternatively, you can shape them with your fingers.
  • Sprinkle the cookies with the cinnamon-sugar blend.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the edges start to toast and the cookies feel somewhat firm.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to wire cooling racks to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.
