Mini Coconut Financiers / Minis Financiers À La Noix De Coco

Galit wanted something Kosher for Passover and asked Karine Vigaelles for advice. Karine suggested “Minis Financiers À La Noix De Coco” off her site, but substituting almond powder for flour. A great success. Very moist and light; a delightful contrast to common fare at passover.

Ingredients
  1. 75 grams butter
  2. 50 grams desiccated coconut
  3. 85 grams icing sugar
  4. 25 grams flour (or substitute more coconut or almond powder to make gluten free)
  5. 2 egg whites
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Melt the butter over low heat until a hazelnut colour, then remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, pour flour, coconut and icing sugar.
  4. Add the egg white and whisk a moment.
  5. Add the melted butter while continuing to stir.
  6. Pour in the silicon financier moulds
  7. Bake at 180C until golden / very lightly browned (10-15 minutes)
Notes
  1. The original recipe was for 12 mini financiers so I increased the quantities to fill our silicon mould, which holds 20. And I translated it to English.
