    Coconut Macaroons:
    from Atkins New diet revolution

    Atkins bake mix (for dusting)
    4 egg whites, at room temperature
    1 1/2 C sugar substitute (I used Splenda)

    3 cups grated unsweetened coconut (about 8 oz)

    1: Heat oven to 325 F. Grease 2 baking sheets and dust with bake mix.

    2: With an electric mixer, whip egg whites on low until medium peaks form; gradually beat in sugar substitute and extract; continue beating until stiff peaks form.

    3:Fold in coconut. Drop mixture by tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. Shape into little mounds with wet fingertips.

    4: Bake 12 minutes; cool on sheets 1 minute, then carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
