Paleo Macaroons

A Primal Macaroon Recipe

Until recently, I was under the impression that paleo meant gluten free, until I learned that it really meant cooking without any processed foods. What to do when you can't use processed flour such as rice flour like with gluten-free recipes? I whisk the egg whites into a firm submission in this recipe to get the same consistency that you would get from flour.

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 Teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 Cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Cups shredded coconut flakes

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites with the sea salt until firm. Fold in the maple syrup and coconut flakes. Using a tablespoon, scoop the batter into little mounds onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the macaroons are golden brown.
