Back to the basics with my blog, our food, life in general, and Enjoying this Journey...

I experimented with a new macaroon...

These little coconut gems are fully AIP compliant! They are spiced nicely as-is, but for an extra boost of flavors grind the cinnamon and cloves fresh!

This revelation is all thanks to running out of ground cinnamon and cloves. Thankfully, I had whole spices on hand {for making Elderberry syrup}. So I ground a cinnamon stick up and 6 whole cloves. Oh my WORD. The smell is beyond anything I had ever used before… I was in deep smit. So was The Mister. He suggested we stop buying ground spices entirely and just grind them ourselves.

I love that man.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Heat the coconut butter, cinnamon, cloves, and maple syrup over medium heat. Stir often, until the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and fold in shredded coconut and sea salt.
  3. Scoop up the macaroon mixture, using a #60 cookie scoop, packed tightly, but level. Release onto the sheet pan, using your fingers to help it keep its shape if need be. Continue with the remaining macaroon mixture.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes before removing from the oven. Cool a few minutes on the sheet pan before moving to a wire rack. They may crumble otherwise... Hopefully you can wait that long.

    These cookies were too die for! I have been following the AIP protocol for nearly 30 days, and when I made these, the only problem, was I ate like 10! I know that has to be more than 1 tsp honey I am allotted per day, but what the heck! So happy to have a tasty treat! Reply

      Thank you SO much for the kind words, Paulette. I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed these macaroons. And don't worry, I don't judge indulgent moments. I have my fair share of them. ;) Reply
