FFwD - Coconut Friands

This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Coconut Friands.  Normally friands are made with  icing sugar, egg whites and almond meal, but these friands are made with egg whites, coconut, castor sugar and flour.  The coconut factor struck fear into the hearts of non-coconut lovers in our group, but I am a fan of coconut, so I wasn't phased.

These were sweet, light and delicious - I really enjoyed them, more so than a denser regular friand.  However, Dorie must have used awfully small tins to get 20 cakes - I barely got 12.

Here is my container of friands in all their glory (yes, that glamorous dish is Tupperware):
