Low Fat Snack Ideas – Easy Cornflakes Coconut Macaroons




By Kate Miller

It's always nice to sink your teeth into something sweet without feeling guilty. Although there's a plethora of free-fat or low-free cookies available in the stores, they can be quite expensive at times. I really enjoy baking my own guiltless sweet treats and to be very honest, I saved quite a bit of money too!

Here's a healthy recipe that will guarantee to satisfy any sweet cravings, all under 150 calories per serving.

Cornflakes Coconut Macaroons Recipe


4 egg whites

250 grams icing sugar, sifted

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

180 grams desiccated coconut

180 grams cornflakes, lightly crushed



How to make coconut macaroons

Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add icing sugar and continue whisking until mixture is of still meringue consistency.


Add vanilla essence, desiccated coconut and crushed cornflakes.


Using two teaspoons, shape a teaspoon of mixture into a ball and drop onto a baking sheet which is prepared with cooking spray.


Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 20 minutes or until firm.


Store coconut macaroons in an air tight container. Makes about 100 small macaroon balls.
