Coconut Macaroons – A Favorite

Over the holidays I made paleo coconut macaroons and while they were good they were not exactly what I was looking for in a macaroon.  Really I wanted my macaroon to stay together better and to have an airier texture.  This recipe fit all that I was looking for!  They were gone in about 2 days – so I think others liked them too!

Coconut Macaroons (thanks goes to Penny Ann Habek )


1 1/3 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup organic sugar
2 Tbl flour (I used sprouted flour)
1/8 tsp sea salt
2 egg whites (add the yolks to your next batch of scrambled eggs – yummy!)
1/2 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

2. In a bowl combine the coconut, sugar, flour and salt.

3. Stir in the egg whites and vanilla – mix well.

4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

5. Drop by the spoon onto the line cookie sheet.

6. When I had about half of the batter left – I decided to put about 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder in the batter.  Knew these were good without it, but wanted to do an experiment.

7. Bake for about 18 t0 20 minutes – they will get a golden brown.

8. Cool on a wire rack.  Makes about 1 1/2 dozen macaroons

You will love them!
