Brilliant Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons, GF, Sugarfree option

I love the sweet chewiness of a coconut macaroon but the sugar content in the commercial products was always too much for my tastes. Until I made these...They are divine and healthy! And guess what? they are super easy to make gluten free!

Gluten-Free Maple Bacon Buckwheat Carrot Muffins
Makes 8-10 muffins
Author-Ali Williams


3/4 cup gluten-free Buckwheat flour
1/4 cup gluten-free oatmeal- ground to flour (see Shirley's info on protocol oats here)
1 tablespoon psyllium husks or golden flax seed, ground to flour. I use a clean coffee mill
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon gluten-free cinnamon
1 large egg
1/2 cup almond milk
3 medium carrots, washed, peeled, and grated
3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
3 slices crisp bacon for the garnish


Whisk the first 6 dry ingredients together in a large bowl. 

In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg. Add the almond milk, shredded carrots, coconut oil and maple syrup.

Stir the wet into the dry until just incorporated. 

With a spoon, fill each lined muffin cup about 3/4 full of batter.

Bake at 350 F. for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool on rack.

Frosting and crispy bacon garnish-opt- but seriously yummy!
