  • 3 large egg whites
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 200 g desiccated coconut
  • 60 g dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 160C
  • Line a baking sheet or tray with baking paper
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff
  • Add the sugar in 3 batches and whisk until the sugar has dissolved
  • Fold the desiccated coconut into the mixture. make sure to do this gently so no air is lost
  • Using a dessert spoon, spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet and spread out a little.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown
  • Remove from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes on the sheet and then move to a wire rack to cool further.
