Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and set aside.
Whisk the egg whites and add the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix to combine.
Stir in the melted chocolate, maple syrup, and shredded coconut, coating the coconut completely.
Measure out a tablespoon of dough and shape it into a ball. Press it down onto the cookie sheet to flatten slightly. Continue with eight more tablespoons, spacing them evenly on the cookie sheet.
Bake for about 13 minutes, until the top of the cookies are set. The inside should remain soft.
Repeat this process with the remaining batter.
Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
