Ingredients:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea sal
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Weet-Bix™, finely crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut, unsweetened
 

To decorate (optional)

  • Icing sugar
  • 100g dark chocolate, melted
  • glace cherries

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a flat tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites, sugar, salt and vanilla until frothy – about 30 seconds. Add Weet-Bix™ and coconut to egg white mixture and stir well.
  3. Scoop rounded tablespoons of batter onto the prepared tray. Leave as mounds, or use wet fingers to pinch tops into tree shapes.
  4. Bake 8–10 minutes until golden. Cool on tray 5 mins then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  5. For a special touch, dust with icing sugar or melt dark chocolate and drizzle over cooled cookies. Top with a piece of glace cherry before the chocolate sets.

Tips:

  • To melt chocolate, place chopped chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and microwave in 10 second bursts, stirring each time, until nearly melted. Stir well to help melt any remaining pieces. If the chocolate re-sets as you’re using it, repeat the process.
