Top 10 Gifts of the Coconut Tree

  

9. Coconut Flour

The flour from the coconut is perfect for baking and as a substitute for grain flours for the strict paleo. The flour is light and fluffy and doesn’t have the hard or chewy texture you would expect from a grain-free dessert.

Here’s one of my favorite recipes that is chocked full of delicious coconut. It’s a real crowd-pleaser for everyone in the family too!

Raw Coco-Nutty Macaroons

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Shredded Coconut
  • ¼ Cup Organic Coconut Meal (flour)
  • ¼ Cup Organic Almond Meal (flour)
  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (or coconut butter)
  • 2 Tbsp Grade B Maple Syrup (you can also use melted coconut sugar/nectar)
  • 2 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract or powder
  • 1 Pinch of Sea Salt

Directions:

  • Combine the almond and coconut flour and shredded coconut in a bowl (you can use a food processor or your hands).
  • In a different bowl, combine the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and sea salt – mix together.
  • Combine both mixtures (all of the ingredients) with hands to form macaroon dough.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop the dough and form small balls by rolling in your hands.
  • You can either put the balls into a food dehydrator for about 5-6 hours or simply put them in the fridge and enjoy!

Makes about 12 cookies.
