Coconut Macaroons

I think if you ask anyone who is dedicated to a healthy eating lifestyle, they would say half of their success comes from preparation. On Sunday, I like to shop, plan, and prep my meals for the week, so Monday through Friday, I don’t even have to think about it.

These delicious macaroons are one of the things I can make on Sunday and store in the fridge for the rest of the week and take out whenever I need them. They make a perfect snack, side to lunch, or even “dessert.” I usually eat 1-2 per day.

The recipe comes from Karena and Katrina from @toneitup and ever since I discovered it I have been hooked!

Ingredients (makes seven cookies)

  • 1 banana
  • ½ egg
  • ½ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mash banana, egg, unsweetened coconut flakes, and vanilla protein powder together
  3. Form the mixture into seven macaroons. Place each macaroon on a baking sheet sprayed with your preferred cooking spray.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven

*If you think seven cookies won’t last you the whole week, then double the recipe to make fourteen.
