Paleo Coconut Macaroons are one of the simplest treats to prepare when you need a sweet recipe that’s easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients.
I have made these coconut macaroons one night I wanted to prepare a yummy breakfast for the following morning… and when I enjoyed them with my husband, dipping them in the delicious cherry smoothie you see in the pictures, I was gladly impressed with the result!
As you can see from the list of ingredients, this recipe is absolutely grain free and suitable for all those who are following a grain free paleo diet. As opposed to the traditional coconut macaroons, that are usually extra sweet and filled with sugar, these paleo treats are delicately sweetened with just a little bit of coconut sugar.
What’s also great about these pastries is that they are really rich and one goes a long way, they leave you satisfied without indulging too much and one batch lasts a long time.
Can’t wait for you to try them!!
Paleo Coconut Macaroons
- 80 gr Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 2 free range Eggs
- 50 gr Coconut Sugar
- 40 gr Coconut Milk
- 1 1/2 tsp alcohol free Vanilla Extract
- 1 pinch Himalayan Salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the erythritol and the agave until creamy.
- Add in the vanilla, salt and coconut milk and stir well.
- Lastly add in the shredded coconut and combine until you get a dense, sticky batter.
- Take 1 full tablespoon of batter and roll it in your hands giving your macaroons a spheric shape.
- Place your coconut macaroons on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes.
- Flip the macaroons, bake them for 5 more minutes and let them cool down completely.
NOTE: If you’d like to know what’s in the smoothie you see in these photos, I blended together 1 small organic apple, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup frozen cherries and 1/4 cup water. I poured it in a bowl and decorated it with a few drops of coconut milk.
Let me know how they came out and I send you all a big hug!
I love your blog! Totally gonna try this recipe! I have a question is there any ingredient I can use instead of Erythritol? Beacuse I’m from Uruguay and it’s not so easy for us to find this product here.
Thank you! 🙂
Ciao Lucia! and thanks so much for your beautiful message!
Do you think you can find Xylitol where you are? If you not you can aways coconut sugar (that tastes amazing) or date sugar…
Let me know what you end up using and please share a photo with me! I’d love to see!
