28 July 2015

For all the coconut lovers out there (myself included) here is a recipe just for you. These tart and refreshing coconut and lime macaroons are grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free & paleo friendly. Absolutely perfect for satisfying that sweet tooth.


2 1/4 cups finely shredded coconut, dried and unsweetened

1/2 cup almond flour

3/4 cup coconut milk, full fat & unsweetened

2 tbsp raw honey

Zest of 1 lime

2 tbsp fresh lime juice, about 1 lime juiced

Pinch of Celtic sea salt


Preheat oven to 180⁰C.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, gently whisk coconut, almond four, lime zest, and sea salt.

Pour in the coconut milk, xylitol, and lime juice and mix together with a spatula.

Using a cookie scoop (1 1/2 tbsp. size), drop small macaroon balls onto parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 40-45 minutes

Allow macaroons to cool briefly and then transfer to refrigerator to cool for 1 hour before serving. Macaroons will firm up in the refrigerator turning into a dense coconut cookie.

Macaroons are best served chilled.


Yours in Health Always,
