Recipe: Paleo Macaroons

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I think that, after sharing some quirks with you yesterday, I should also let you know that my dog sees an acupuncturist.

She takes a very holistic approach to Rocky's health that I appreciate, and the other day she said that he would benefit from some coconut in his diet; so Rocky should have one or two macaroons a day, which I also appreciate and simultaneously find hilarious (there's just something about handing a dog a human dessert that cracks me up).

Anyway, my mom and I picked up a couple tins of macaroons at the co-op over the weekend and while she and I and Rocky thoroughly enjoyed them, we (well, two of us, at least) were a little put off by how much added sugar they contained. So we made a Paleo version. Because a Paleo family is a happy family, dog and all.

  

We used this recipe from Elana's Pantry:


And they are Rocky-approved.

  6. oh man. I can't show this to Charlie because he'll be SO jealous.

    but also I have never seen macaroons with flaked coconut - we always used shredded! in England they call it "masticated' which is totally gross.

  8. Rocky is such a fortunate boy to be in such a loving home. Coconut is a miracle food. So good for digestive health and so tasty. It's a twofer.

    Also, macaroons probably fall into the cookie category, right? Does Jenna know about this? LOL!

  10. I'm making these right now. Found your adorable blog by searching for Paleo applesauce muffins. Saw this recipe and decided to make these instead. When I first saw your site I thought you were a graphic designer. I'm an English major as well and went to school in California. Thanks for posting this.
