The positive approach
August 11, 2013 § Leave a comment
Summer may be drawing to an end and yes I can no longer eat anything containing gluten. But since my new mantra is “Change is a good thing“, I´m endeavouring to take the positive approach and meet it all with a smile. So on this windy day I´ve taken the opportunity to stay in and bake lovely, Gluten-free and moist coconut macaroons for afternoon tea – something less suitable for a hot summers day but perfect for a day like this.
Scroll down for the recipe.
160 g honey
250 g shredded coconut
3 tbsp coconut flour
3 tbsp coconut oil
60 g dark chocolate
Whip eggs and honey till fluffy, white and creamy. Mix in the shredded coconut and the coconut flour and finally add the melted coconut oil. Place 12 dollops on baking paper and shape the top to make it slightly pointy like in picture. Heat the oven to 175 C / 350 F and bake the macaroons for 12-15 minutes till they have a nice golden colour. Leave to cool. When completely cooled, coat the bottom in melted dark chocolate and leave to dry on some parchment paper or, like I did, upside down in an egg cup:-)
Make a nice cup of tea and share these moist and tasty macaroons with a loved one.
