Benefits of Coconut

Coconut contains medium chain triglycerides known as MCTs where are know to digest slowly and can be a preferred source of energy for the body.

Shredded coconut contains over 2.5 grams protein and more than 4 grams of fiber in just one cup. Protein, fiber and healthy fats help you feel full longer. One cup of shredded coconut also contains almost 2 milligrams of zinc, a important mineral for your immune system this holiday season.

Look for unsweetened shredded coconut for baking recipes consuming excess unnecessary sugar.

6 servings


  • 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut *
  • 3 egg whites
  • ¾ cup local honey or 100% real maple syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • Toppings: Holiday themed edible treats!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl add the egg whites and use a handheld blender with whisk attachment to whisk egg whites to stiff peaks.
  3. Add the honey and salt and stir or whisk together with the egg whites.
  4. Add the shredded and flaked coconut and, and mix thoroughly.
  5. Use a non-stick donut pan and grease/oil it heavily.
  6. Spoon mix into donut molds, bake in oven for 12 minutes.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes in donut pan and then gently pop out wreaths, let wreaths cool for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
  8. Notes: The same mix/batter can be used to make coconut macaroon mounds instead of wreaths.
  9. *Avoid very large flakes of the flaked coconut, chop if necessary. Large flakes cause the macaroons to break apart easily.
  10. If you do not have a donut pan, chill the mix/batter for 30 minutes and then form wreaths with your hands on a greased/lined baking sheet.
