I Love Sharing!! Check out this coconut recipe another amazing FPIES mama shared with me!!

Experimenting in the kitchen today once more!!!! I got a link to a GREAT RECIPE for eggless coconut macaroons from another amazing FPIES mama (you know who you are!) These turned out beautifully and will definitely be on our sweets menu for Valentine's Day. The only alterations I made--- I added 1 Tbsp of coconut manna (technically the same thing as coconut oil, but slightly more spreadable) and I drizzled a homemade caramel sauce over top of the cookies instead of dipping them in chocolate (since we haven't trialled it yet!). The recipe is at the end of this post! I also used the arrowroot version of this recipe, rather than the potato starch. I was very happy with how well everything held together!

And now for some notes! First of all, all you need are TWO safe foods-- either coconut and potato or coconut and arrowroot. Once everything is really well blended, the batter will look flakey. Just press the dough into a small scoop (like a melon baller or the pampered chef cookie scoop), release onto cookie sheet (be sure to cover this will parchment paper!), and then you will have to mold it slightly into shape. As it bakes, it retains its shape. These are not flat cookies! :) I did a half batch and it made about 16 cookies, using the pampered chef cookie scoop to shape the cookies. They will be lightly golden brown on the edges when they are done. And now for some pics!

 Caramel Sauce!
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp coconut manna

Heat in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl for 15 seconds. Blend with a fork. While sauce is still warm, drizzle over top of cooling cookies. It will solidify upon standing for too long.

The final product! B added the banana. She felt that it added a nice touch!

This is what they look like coming out of the oven!


  1. Awesome!! I am SO excited to try these!! It is a treat we can BOTH eat!! :)

  2. These were really yummy! We served them as part of her second bday!
