Chocolate and coconut would send anyone over the moon. The addition of egg whites and baking powder keep these Featherlight Chocolate-Coconut Cupcakes light, fluffy and figure-friendly.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
What To Do:
  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
  3. In a bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, flour, cocoa, and baking powder. Sift together twice; set aside. Add the vanilla extract, cream of tartar, and salt to egg whites. With an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff, glossy peaks form. Gradually fold in cocoa mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time. Gently fold in coconut. Spoon batter into muffin tins, filling each about 2/3 full.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes of until golden brown and top appears dry. Cool Completely.
