Coconut Macaroons 
  • 2 egg whites
  • 100g coconut flakes
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • honey or stevia to sweeten
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350 F.
Whisk egg whites into stiff peaks.
Mix the coconut flakes with the egg whites.
Next, add cinnamon and as much sweetener as you want and shape macaroons with a spoon onto a baking sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the top of the macaroons turns golden brown like the picture shows.
Sand Tarts (in a slightly different shape)
  • 60g coconut oil
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 130g coconut flour
  • 150g greek yogurt
  • A few drops vanilla extract or one vanilla bean
  • Almond milk 
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350 F.
Melt the coconut oil first, then combine with all the other ingredients.
Use as much almond milk as you need to make the dough a good consistency, not too sticky and not too liquid, so it’s easy to roll out.
Use a cookie cutter afterwards or just create a typical sand tart shape. Again place the cookies on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Of course that time can vary from oven to oven, so keep an eye on cookies while they bake. When the sand tarts are ready to take out, add some dark chocolate if you want to or enjoy them as they are.
