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 MacaroonsIngredients:
- 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
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.
Take a tablespoon and scoop them out onto your baking sheet. You can place them close together because they don't spread.
(Here's why I need Bounty when baking, btw.)
Bake for 13-15 minutes until they start to brown.
They are soft, coconutty, and crisp on top. Plus the walnut meal gives them a slight earthiness. These are my new favorite dessert!
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!
