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,
