Over the Moon for Macaroons

IMG_5773

I’ll admit, growing up, I wasn’t a huge coconut fan. This is probably due to the fact that my only exposure to it was in the sugary-flaky form. Fast-forward 2 decades, and suddenly it’s among my favorite tastes. Really, it’s the exaggerated, over-sugared version of fruits that I don’t like. Just like I despised cherry-flavored candy as a kid, I would have gladly eaten a bucket of fresh cherries. This recipe uses coconut in it’s unadulterated state – as both a butter and flakes – and makes it special!

Coconut butter: is rich in bacteria-killing, immunity-boosting lauric acid. It is one of the closest food in the world to breast milk. Coconut butter contributes to staving off candida (yeast overgrowth). Because it is a medium-chain fatty acid, it is burned for energy rather than fat storage and helps to stimulate the metabolism.

    Hi there! I just tried this recipe and before the 10 minute mark in the oven, the macaroons were completely burnt and smoking! I followed the recipe exactly. Any suggestions? Possibly baking at a lower temp? 450 seems a bit high. I was really looking forward to trying these and making as gifts so please let me know! Thanks!

      Hi Camilla,
      It should be 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I think that was a mistype either by me or Greatist. So sorry that happened! Stand by as they cook, because also depending on the type of coconut butter used, things could could faster or slower. Let me know how it goes!
