Delicious gluten-free coconut sweets: look how beautiful (and how good!)

Gluten-free coconut cookies

Gluten-free foods have now entered the diet of many Italians. Let's see how to prepare coconut sweets, perfect for celiac friends.

Today we discover together one of the easiest sweet gluten-free recipes ever. In fact, to prepare these coconut sweets, only three ingredients will be sufficient: coconut flour (which we know is among the gluten-free foods), sugar and egg whites . This dessert is the clearest example that not only following a gluten-free diet doesn't mean giving up on taste, but also that very little is needed to serve a truly mouth-watering dessert.

It goes without saying that this preparation is also perfect for recycling leftover egg whites from other preparations. The classic example that leads to an excess of egg whites is custard, but from today we will feel less guilty about preparing it. Indeed, we will also have the excuse to make two different desserts!

How to prepare coconut cookies recipe

  1. Preparing this recipe is almost disarmingly simple. No complex operations, no strange tools: just a bowl, a spatula and a pastry bag with a star nozzle .
  2. Put the coconut, sugar and egg whites in a bowl and mix well to obtain a floury mixture. Let it sit for 15 minutes for the coconut to absorb the moisture from the egg white.
  3. Then transfer it into a pastry bag fitted with a star nozzle and dress small piles of dough on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. If you don't have a pocket, form small balls of dough with your hands: the taste will certainly not be affected!
  4. Cook these coconut cakes for 10 minutes at 200°C and take them out of the oven when they are golden brown. Wait until they are completely cold before removing them from the pan or they will tend to break.
