I made these!

I confess that I do not remember exactly what I did and that I do not measure, so if you are a stickler for accuracy, then I apologize right now!  I think they came out pretty well and tasted almost exactly like traditional macaroons.

On the Whole Life Challenge, we should avoid grains and processed sugars for eight weeks.  I used to make coconut macaroons fairly regularly, so it was pretty easy to come up with a recipe that would be WLC approved (dates instead of the sugar, coconut flour instead of the wheat flour, etc.).

Let me know in the comments if you decide to give it a try! :)



3-4 Organic Mejool Dates

12 Drops Stevia

1 Tsp Vanilla

4 Egg Whites

3-4 Tbsp Coconut Flour

2-3 Tbsp Coconut Water (or regular water)

1 C Shredded Unsweetend Coconut


Heat oven to 350 and cover baking sheet with parchment paper

Chop/process dates.  Place in bowl with vanilla and stevia and set aside

Beat egg whites to stiff peaks

Fold in remaiining ingredients and mix thoroughly

Shpae macaroons and place on sheet

Bake aout 20 minutes or until top looks golden

Cool on metal rack

Yeah, it makes me happy.  

I participate in the DGrin photography challenges from time to time and the current theme is 'chocolate', so it goes without saying that I have to participate in this one!  I also have to make a cake with my shiny new kitchen aid in order to do so.  Life is rough, I know.
