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.
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.
