On rainy days, my son and I have a favourite plan, we like baking something sweet for our teatime.
Today we prepared coquitos. They are easy, healthy and delicious… very “eatwell&livefit” style.
If you have kids at home, I’m sure you will spend a good time together making these coconut balls … and eating them afterwards 😉
For about 15 coquitos:
150 gr. of grated coconut
5 egg whites
grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of sweetener (agave, honey, brown sugar…)
Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees.
Put the grated coconut and the lemon zest in a bowl.
Add the egg whites and the sweetener to the bowl. Mix it. (It will look like thick sand).
Wet your hands and make little balls.
Put the balls on an oven tray with wax paper. Bake them at 180 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Leave them to cool down.
Ready to eat!
The portion to eat in the afternoon with a nice cup of tea would be 1 coquito as they are quite satiating and energetic. That’s why they can be also a perfect pre-training snack.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do 🙂
