Ingredients: 4 egg whites,½ cup (125 mL) granulated sugar,1 cup (250 mL) peanuts, coarsely chopped,½ tsp (2 mL) salt,2 ¾ cups (675 mL) sweetened coconut, flaked or shredded,1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk egg whites with sugar, vanilla and salt until well combined. Stir in coconut and peanuts.Using 2 dessert spoons (as mixture is sticky), gather a heaping tablespoon (about 22 mL) of the mixture.
