Thank you to all of you that came out for the paleo potluck. There was lots of delicious food, drinks and entertainment. I was very impressed by the variety of foods displayed on Saturday night…I had began to think that none of you cooked since I haven’t received any recipes. Please don’t be shy, send away! My fridge is getting very full. You can fire me an email at

I made these delcioius treats for the party. But I will have to stay Viki’s blue balls had me beat!

Coconut Macaroons


  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup coconut ribbons (or 1 more cup shredded coconut if you can’t find ribbons)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp celtic salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup- I used blackberry honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • In large bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form
  • Add salt, vanilla and maple syrup and stir until just combined
  • Stir in coconut
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls on parchment line baking sheet
  • The mixture may fall apart slightly so using your finger tips, press the mixture back together into tight little mounds, creating a slight peak at the top if you can
  • Bake in preheated 325 oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned
  • Remove and cool on wire rack
