Coconut Macoroons

3 posts in this topic

I can't eat very many things right now and was still looking for a healthy way to make something sweet.

Since coconut is so good for candida and I love coocnut..this worked out nice.

So I made these. I like to call them macoroons instead of macaroons..not sure why..lol

One and a half cups sugar free natural shredded coconut.

Three egg whites.

One tsp real almond flavoring.

One tsp Stevia.

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix egg whites and almond flavoring together until there's a slight sheen.

Mix the coconut and stevia together then gradually add to the moist mixture.

Put in fridge for a half hour.

Spoon onto cookie sheet. I just used a regular cookie sheet. Surprisingly didn't even coat it and they didn't stick. Suppose it depends on what sort of cookie sheet you have.

Bake for about 10 minutes until slightly broown.

Don't overcook or they will be dry since these don't have any sweetened condensed milk in them.

I was looking for another way to eat coconut for candida and make something a little sweet too.

For something so simple, these are really good if you like coconut, have no sugar and very little fat or anything really.

You can use vanilla flavoring too, but I find the almond gives it more a deep richer flavor with a kick.

Since this is so basic as far as ingredients go..the key too I think is to use a real flavoring since that's going to be the main taste in these.

I felt guily eating them they were so good..yet no sugar and I am fighting the candida with the coconut.

I only cook up what I will at that time so today I added some cinnamon and clove to the mix. Yummy. I love clove.

These aren't as 'gooy' as some of the richer one's are..but I sort of like that. I was able to digest them so much better not having the sweetened condensed milk in them.

I'm so glad I love coconut, can tolerate it and it's good for me because they really took away my craving for something sweet.

They are really basic but there's so many different spices one could add or a few sesame seeds if one can do nuts.

Be sure not to overcook as these are a bit drier than the regular ooy gooy one's.

    • Jmg, I am glad you were able to come to the realisation that the culprit was in fact gluten. For me its not so simple. IBS runs in the family, as do several food intolerances. Its just in the last while that I can finally reach the conclusion that for me its gluten. The fact that it is a delayed effect-several hours after, made it harder.  Friday I had some KFC, felt great. Saturday evening felt sleepy, Sunday felt awful and my belly was huge.  I think I have gone from mildly sensitive to full blown celiac over the course of five years-if that possible. Thanks for all your help.
    • I thought I'd take a moment to provide an update, given how much lurking I've done on these forums the last year. It took a long time, but I've since had another gastroenterologist visit, many months of eating tons of bread, and an endoscopy where they took several biopsies. I have to say, the endoscopy was a super quick and efficient experience. During the procedure they let me know that it looked somewhat suspicious, causing them to take many biopsies, and then did comprehensive blood work. About a month later, I received a call telling me that the TTG came back positive a second time, and that the biopsies were a mix of negative (normal) results and some that were positive (showing blunting of the villi). As a result, I've been given a celiac diagnosis. It's been about a month now that I've been eating gluten free. Not sure if I'm really feeling all that different yet. It's a bit twisted to say, but in some way I was hoping for this diagnosis — thinking how nice it would be to have an explanation, a plan of action, and feeling better. It's certainly no small change to be totally gluten free, but I'm hopeful.
    • Is it possible to go from a mild form of gluten sensitivity, to a more severe form, and finally full blown celiac?  If so, that is one of the confusing aspects of this. I have been gluten free for several weeks, and almost feeling 'normal'. I had to go and ruin it with two pieces of KFC! That stuff is  my cocaine! Sure enough,  next two days I was sleepy, depressed, and my belly stuck way out.  Before I could get away with a little cheating. Not anymore I guess!
    • I've had peeling lips for over 3 years now. What helps my lips the most is taking HCL with every meal. Another thing...I've been grain free for the most part for helping to keep my weight down. But I had noticed a few times after eating bread products, that my lips would improve significantly. So I'm eating einkorn wheat and taking HCL and have had the most improvement since it started which was around menopause. The burning at the beginning was really bad until I got off of coffee and the burning stopped. I read that coffee was a hormone disruptor. I don't know what the conclusion will be but thought I would give you my 2 cents thus far.
    • My feet used to swell up too. Impossible to sleep. Started using compression stockings and that helped. Off that job for half year, meanwhile getting 100% gluten free. Back on my feet again all day and 2 weeks later notice my feet are not swelling or heating up like before. So yes, there is a connection.
