Coconut Macaroons

coconut macaroon recipe

These are so easy to make, I keep forgetting!  Such a great dessert, or snack, or breakfast!!

4 Egg Whites

2 2/3 Cups Coconut shredded

2 Tbl Flour (any kind, I like to use GF of course and choose to use coconut flour)

1/4 tsp Salt

1 tsp Vanilla

2/3 Cup of Sugar

Scoop into any size ball and place on a pan.  Bake at 350 degrees until lightly golden brown on top (maybe 15-20 min).

Melt chocolate and dip and chill for an extra sweetness.

Options to add to macs before baking:

Cinnamon

Cacao Powder

Cardamom

Ginger

Banana Ginger Jam

I keep finding discounted organic bananas at local markets.  I’ve dehydrated them and froze them but I keep finding them at the markets at such a low price that I feel compelled to buy them!  I was looking for another way to preserve them and found this recipe.  I’m in love!  I put it on toast with some coconut oil or on oatmeal; you could even put it over yogurt or ice cream!  I’m even thinking of making a pie with it….it’s so so good!

4 Bananas

1/2 tsp Ginger Powder (I think it’s better to use powder than fresh so its evenly dispersed but feel free to use fresh ginger)

1/2 tsp Orange Flavor (or zest and juice of an orange)

1/2 Lemon Juice (and zest)

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

4 tsp honey (agave for vegan)

Heat and keep stirring.  Allow to simmer for 15 minutes.  Sanitize canning jars and fill.
