Unsweetened coconut means these little morsels will not overwhelm you with sugar. Just a little honey and almond extract provide the sweet note.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 eggs, separated
- 2 tablespoons margarine, softened
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/3 cup boiling water
- 3/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
In a large bowl beat egg yolks. Add the butter, honey, almond extract, boiling water, coconut, and flour. Stir until just blended.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff with an electric mixer. Fold egg whites into muffin batter. Pour batter two-thirds of the way full into greased muffin tin.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
