chocolate dipped macaroons: a gaps friendly recipe

20130901-002823.jpg

our real food journey is taking another turn and we are now baby stepping towards the full gaps diet. reasons are many but suffice to say we are all feeling better and doing better on it which is the main thing!

some days, as we all know, call for a treat (or 4!) and these gorgeous, chocolate dipped macaroons hit the spot. guilt free, totally healthy and totally delicious!

gaps diet macaroons
7 egg whites
1/8 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
lemon zest
3/4 cup honey
3 cups of coconut

beat the egg whites and salt until fluffy. gently fold in other ingredients. place dollops onto cookie sheet (or in muffin tin) and bake at 250F (130C) for about 50 minutes or until golden brown on top.

whilst the macaroons are cooling, make the chocolate.

gaps chocolate

equal parts coconut oil, honey and cocoa powder melted and whisked together.

dip the macaroons into the chocolate and place on some baking paper in the fridge for chocolate to harden. if you want a thicker layer of chocolate, repeat this process again as many times as you like, making sure the previous layer has properly hardened first.

eh voila, perfectly healthy and in my opinion, way better than the sugary version!
