A Quick Sweet Treat (Paleo Macaroons)

Paleo Coconut Macaroons
David has a huge sweet tooth and that is a major challenge when you are trying to eat Paleo. I found this recipe online and it is a great one, I wish I could credit it but I snapped a picture of the screen and couldn't find it again. Anyhow, you'll have that occasionally and these are too good to keep to myself.

These are a quick prep treat and the "batter" holds up well in the fridge if you want to make a few here and there as a fresh baked treat.

What you need:
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup honey
2 & 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut (I had to go to my health food store to find)
A pinch of sea salt

What you do:
Whisk the egg whites and honey together then stir in sea-salt and coconut. Put bowl in fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 and form "dough" into golf ball size balls and place on parchment lined jelly roll pan.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. ENJOY!
