Sugar Free, Gluten Free + Paleo Macaroons


We made this awesome {sugar free and paleo friendly} coconut macaroon recipe. Having struggled with candida for years, I am careful about what sugar enters my body. These have stevia, an alternative sweetener for those with candida or autoimmune issues such as myself or those desire to lose weight.

We tested out this recipe the other day and it was awesome. I love coconut because it has medium chain fatty acids – essential for hormonal health and detoxification. Also lauric acid, found in coconut, naturally fights pathogens, viruses and bacteria (which means this food a yummy immune boosting food too).

You can drizzle dark chocolate or chocolate of your choice at the end for a sweet and divine treat. I love chocolate. I make a raw cacao chocolate sauce made with coconut milk, coconut butter and raw cacao. I drizzle this sauce on or simply make a vegan dark chocolate sauce (not soy milk of course).

Sugar Free, Gluten Free + Paleo Macaroons Recipe

by ( )
3 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon dried powdered stevia leaf
1½ cups dried, unsweetened, fine shredded coconut (the finer the better)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
optional – ½ teaspoon cinnamon or unsweetened cocoa

Preheat oven to 325F (180C)

Whip egg whites and vanilla until glossy peaks form.
In a separate bowl stir together the coconut, stevia leaf powder (cinnamon or cocoa) and sea salt.
Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet, just until well combined.

Let mixture sit about 5 minutes.

Make drop cookies, placing them on a sheet of unbleached parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet, using about 2 teaspoons of the mixture per cookie. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until outside of the cookies are lightly browned.

Remove from oven and let cool – if you can resist – on the baking sheet to room temp. Store in an airtight container if you actually have any remaining at the end of the day. Makes about 20 cookies. More or less depending on how big or little you make them.
