My grandma had a sweet tooth and she gave it to me! Her favorite treat was a coconut macaroon and a cup of coffee. I remember thinking she was crazy for liking cookies made from coconut! Not any more.

We use so much coconut in our house that I just had to try making them. I did not want to add sugar and junk though, so I made my own recipe: paleo coconut macaroons. This recipe is a much healthier variation because they contain immune-boosting raw honey, healthy fat in the coconut, and quality protein with the pastured eggs. Not to say these are a balanced meal in one little cookie, but they are a much healthier option if you are going to have a sweet treat!

This recipe is a much healthier variation because they contain immune-boosting raw honey, healthy fat in the coconut, and quality protein with the pastured eggs. Not to say these are a balanced meal in one little cookie, but they are a much healthier option if you are going to have a sweet treat!

Ingredients

  • 6 egg whites (preferably from pastured eggs)
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 3 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla

Instructions

1. Beat egg whites in a large, clean and dry bowl using a hand mixer.

2. Beat until stiff peaks form.

3. Drizzle in melted honey (to melt your raw honey) and vanilla.

4. Fold in coconut.

5. Using a cookie scooper, scoop the batter onto dehydrator trays.

6. Dehydrate at 145* until firm to your likeness (sometimes I like them chewy and sometimes I like them crunchy....it's up to you).

*Note: When I make this recipe, I also make a double batch of my homemade mayonnaise. It is a great way to use up the 6 egg yolks you have leftover from this recipe!
