  • Preheat oven to 180C/355F. Prepare a 12 cup friand tin by greasing well with coconut oil and placing small ovals of parchment paper in the base of each hole (Cupcake papers can be used instead).
  • In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except the egg whites. Mix well.
  • Add the egg whites to your stand mixer bowl, with the whisk attachment. Whip until they reach stiff peaks.
  • Gently mix ⅓ of the egg whites into the other ingredients.
  • Add the remaining egg whites and fold through gently.
  • Evenly spoon the batter between the 12 holes of your prepared friand tin. (Optional: sprinkle a little unsweetened shredded coconut on top for a garnish.)
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the friands spring back when touched.
  • Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before enjoying - don’t forget to remove the paper from the base!
