Alternative to macaron: Soft, fluffy paleo almond cookies – all natural, Gluten-free, dairy free

Delicious, soft, sweet, fluffy, easy & ready in 15 minutes from start to finish. What’s not to like? 🙂 these are like the easiest, healthiest macaron alternative you’ve ever tried. No crisp shell or frilly feet, but no supersweet sugar overload either. I’d prefer a bowl of these any day, you could fill & colour them to make them look more like the sugar loaded originals, or just enjoy them as they are.

Nb: if you want a smooth, macaron like top, spoon into small hemispherical or well-like silicone moulds (such as teacake, cupcake or cake pop moulds).


Ingredients: makes 9-12
1 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup egg whites (4 tbsp or 2 egg whites)
Few grains of salt,
2 tbsp honey (or vegan alternative)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1. Put everything in a bowl and mix together. You should get a thick batter.
2. Spoon on to greased baking sheet or silicone mat as shown



3. Bake at 165 degrees C for 12-15 mins, or until done.
