Can I just say that my daughter is the sweetest thing?! And she's becoming quite the Paleo baker, too! I came home from work to a house that smelled sweet from freshly baked macaroons... not just any macaroons, mind you. Paleo "Birthday" Macaroons! ...(kind of takes the sting out of turning 40-something)!
6 egg whites
1/4 tsp. sea salt
3/4 C Honey (preferably organic, local honey)
1 T almond extract
3 C unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Fold in honey, almond extract and shredded coconut. Form macaroons into small balls (or spell something fun)... Bake on a lined cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes (or until lightly browned around the edges).
Serve... and make someone smile! Enjoy...
