It feels like it's been a while since we posted something, so here's a little Sunday treat! Also, 2 Hungry Hearts now has a Facebook page, so click over and 'Like' the page.
Since starting on our Paleo kick, we haven't really had many desserts (except on our cheat days!) since desserts typically include sugar. While coming up with our Easter menu, we had planned to make coconut macaroons (though if you read that post, you'll know that we fell asleep...whomp! whomp!). So, since we didn't make them then, we're making them now!
We had found a recipe online, but Justin didn't really like it...so we made up our own recipe. So for the first time, you'll actually get a recipe out of us:
2 c. unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 c. coconut cream, or coconut milk
1 egg + 4 tbsp liquid egg whites (or just 1 egg + 2 egg whites)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
a generous squirt of honey
pinch of kosher salt
chocolate (if you want to dip your macaroons in it)
All you have to do is mix all of the ingredients together (minus the chocolate). Then just spoon the mixture onto a cookie sheet into whatever size macaroons you'd like.
