Paleo Coconut Macaroons

by Jillian Leslie on

We are eating more of a paleo diet at our house, and I have to say, I'm really like it. I feel healthier and I definitely have more energy.

But now that it's the holiday season, I don't want to feel deprived because I love holiday treats!

So when Bounty asked me to come up with a recipe for the holidays, I knew I wanted to make something that works with my diet, but also feels like a splurge. I'm so happy I whipped up these paleo coconut macaroons. They are absolutely delicious!

The best part is they have no grains -- just egg whites, unsweetened coconut flakes, walnut meal, vanilla, and the tiniest bit of sweetener. And you can put them together in about 10 minutes.

Paleo Coconut Macaroons

Ingredients:
  • one 14oz bag of unsweetened coconut
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup of almond or walnut meal
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
paleo-coconut-macaroon-recipe-11a

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 325F

In one bowl, mix the coconut, nut meal, and salt.

In a second bowl add egg whites and beat until the eggs start to froth. Add the sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until you get a firm peak when you pull the mixer out of the egg whites.

Fold the coconut mix into the egg whites until it is just mixed.

 

paleo-coconut-macaroon-recipe-12a

Take a tablespoon and scoop them out onto your baking sheet. You can place them close together because they don't spread.

paleo-coconut-macaroon-recipe-26

 

(Here's why I need Bounty when baking, btw.)

paleo-coconut-macaroon-recipe-15a

Bake for 13-15 minutes until they start to brown.

paleo-coconut-macaroon-recipe-30a

They are soft, coconutty, and crisp on top. Plus the walnut meal gives them a slight earthiness. These are my new favorite dessert!

paleo-coconut-macaroon-recipe-43a

I will definitely be bringing these to my in-laws on Christmas Day!

And with the holidays come fun times and messy times, especially if you're entertaining guests. So make sure you stock up on Bounty paper towels before the season kicks into full gear!

Plus, there's nothing better for after-holiday clean up!

And to help you save some money, here's are some Bounty coupons and offers.

Christmas Jello

by Jillian Leslie on

Here's a fun recipe for your family this holiday season. How about making some colorful Christmas jello?

Christmas Jello

Ingredients:
  • 3 ounce box cherry jello
  • 3 ounce box lime jello
  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • Water
Directions:

Step 1: Prepare the red and green jello according to package instructions. Chill overnight so that the jello becomes stiff. I used two 8x8” disposable baking pans to make the red and green jello.

Chilled Green and Red Jello Overnight | CatchMyParty.com

Step 2: Cut the red and green jello into cubes (I found the larger the cube the easier it was to work with).

Tip: Before cutting jello, dip the knife or spatula into hot water. This will help you get a clean cut and avoid the jello breaking apart as you cut.

 

Red and Green Jello Cut into Cubes | CatchMyParty.com

Step 3: Gently arrange the green and red cubes in the bottom of a 8x8” baking dish. Grease the baking dish before you place the jello in. I found it better to place the cubes in the pan, in the pattern I wanted them to be. When you mix them, they tend to break apart. Place in fridge while you prepare the white jello.

Step 4: Dissolve the two packets of unflavored gelatin in ½ cup cold water. Boil 1 ½ cups water. Add the ½ cup gelatin mixture to the hot water. Mix until the gelatin dissolves. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir. Allow the milk mixture to cool to room temperature. You can place in fridge for 20 minutes to speed up this process.

Tip: DO NOT pour white jello onto cubes until it is at room temperature. The hot mixture will cause the cubes to break apart.

Step 5: Pour the cooled milk mixture over the red and green jello cubes. Place in fridge overnight to solidify.

When ready to serve, dip knife into hot water before slicing jello. The hot water creates a clean slice!
