    Using fat free condensed milk reduces the calories while still highlighting the coconut.


    14 ounces sweetened flaked coconut
    14 ounces fat-free condensed milk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    2 extra large egg whites, at room temperature
    1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt

    1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
    2. Combine the coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until they make medium-firm peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.
    3. NOTE: Because fat free condensed milk is thinner than regular condensed milk, it may be necessary to allow some liquid to drip out before dropping the batter onto the cookie sheet.
    4. Drop the batter onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper using either a 1 3/4-inch diameter ice cream scoop, or 2 teaspoons. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and serve.

    They look great. I've never heard of fat free condensed milk - I'm not sure we can get it in the UK.

    Regular condensed milk works the same way, and it's probably thicker. When they cooked with the fat free stuff, there was a spill-over around the edges of some of them. Fortunately, the spillover was delicious.

    For safety reasons, of course, you can't use the egg whites if you can't bake them. But, I think this would actually work without the egg whites as a no-bake recipe. The macaroons do hold together without baking, but they're very sticky. On the other hand, they would probably still be very tasty. You may also have to use less condensed milk, but I think it would work.
