Coconut lime bites
150 to 180g / 5.3 to 6.3 oz. / 1 to 1½ cups grated coconut
100g / 3.5 oz. / ½ cup caster sugar
3 egg whites
½ teaspoon vanilla powder
Zest of 1 lime
Optional: juice of half a lime
Preheat the oven to 150°C / 300°F.
In a bowl, combine ⅔ of the coconut with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well with a spatula or wooden spoon. If the mix is too moist, add more coconut.
Take a teaspoonful of mixture and press and form into a rough ball or dome.
Place on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Don’t overbake or they will be dry.
