Watch out everyone, I’m coo coo for Coconuts! They have tons of healthy fat and fiber and are so tasty and healthy for you!
It’s becoming my new obsession! I buy unsweetened shredded coconut in bulk and I even eat it plain. That is just how much I love it!
I also buy whole coconuts from time to time, but not as often because they are a pain in the butt to open up and get the meat out of.
Some of my latest coconut purchases:
Coconut flour – I’m planning on making a birthday cake for my baby’s first birthday with it. Stay tuned for that post.
Raw Chocolate Coconut butter – so yummy! I think I might finish off the jar from snacking on it, before I get the chance to try it in a recipe. haha!
Coconut butter – I have coconut oil (and love it), but I haven’t tried coconut butter before. There is one recipe in particular I would like to use it on. It’s a recipe for peppermint patties using coconut butter. I’m so excited, that will probably be another post as well 🙂
I am so excited to try out some fun coconut recipes and share them with you! In the meantime, I will share a favorite coconut recipe of mine.
Healthy Coconut Macaroons
1c. unsweetened shredded coconut
2 egg whites
1/2c. chocolate chips (optional)
Beat the egg whites until fluffy, then beat in the honey.. then gently spoon in the coconut. bake 400 for 10-12mins.
If you love coconut as much as I do, then you will love them plain.. but they also taste AMAZING with chocolate chips added. Yum!
