Ingredients

  • 14 1/2-ounces sweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups raspberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate

Directions

  1. 1.

    Adjust oven racks to middle and upper positions and preheat oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. 2.

    In the bowl of a food processor combine coconut, sugar, salt, vanilla, egg whites, and almonds. Pulse to combine, about 8 short pulses. Add raspberries and pulse until evenly distributed, about another 8 pulses. Use a medium size cookie scoop (2 3/4-inch diameter, 1 1/2 Tbsp) to scoop dough and drop it onto the prepared baking sheet in rounded balls. Bake cookies until golden in color and dry to the touch, 30-35 minutes.

  3. 3.

    Let cookies cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Drizzle chocolate over cookies and let stand until hardened.
