makes 24 macaroons

4 egg whites
pinch of sea salt

1/2 t almond extract (optional)
1/3 c maple sugar
1 c almond flour
1 1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut

beat egg whites with sea salt until they form stiff peaks. fold in the vanilla and almond extract, maple sugar, almond flour, and shredded coconut. spoon tablespoon-size mounds of batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. allow to cool for five minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack. store in an airtight container.

torn from a magazine (no idea which one) some time between 2010 and 2014.
