  2. In large bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, coconut and salt.
  3. Add honey, egg whites and vanilla extract; blend by hand or with a rubber spatula just until ingredients hold together.
  4. On a baking sheet lined with parchment baking paper or foil, drop batter by rounded tablespoons 1 inch apart.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Do not over-bake.
  6. Cool completely on lined cookie sheet. If cookies stick, peel paper or foil from cookies.
