21 Day Sugar Detox Banana Coconut Macaroons [Nut Free & Paleo]

21 DSD Banana Coconut Macaroon | Vibrant Life Army Wife

Some of you may know that I am currently doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox. This round ends on Sunday so just a few more days left! In general I’ve been feeling pretty great, minus a couple of weird tummy issues and a headache or two (both of which I can attribute to other non-sugar-detoxing issues). My sugar cravings seem to have evolved into fat cravings, and more specifically mayo cravings. And I’ve been able to go long periods of time without eating either because I’m just not hungry or I’m busy and don’t have healthy food available. When this happened in the past I would get dizzy and shaky and incredibly irritable. But not anymore!  No more hangry Kiersten!!! Pretty great, am I right?

If you’re interested in doing your own 21 Day Sugar Detox, check out the (affiliate) link in the sidebar to get everything you could possibly need to survive (and thrive!) on your detox, from videos to recipe e-books, and coupons to one page guides.

So even though I’ve pretty much gotten my sugar demon in check (although I could really use some chocolate right now, but isn’t that always the case?) sometimes it’s still nice to have a little treat to snack on that won’t completely derail you. Enter these Macaroons.

I came home from work last Friday wanting something coconuty and semi-sweet. Typically I’d just blend some coconut butter with a half a green tipped banana (don’t bash it til you try it) but I wanted something a little more sophisticated this time around, you know since it was Friday and all. So I threw these bad boys together and miraculously they came out just perfect, which never ever happens for me with baked goods! So needless to say I was pretty stoked on life.

They are incredibly delicious too. So delicious that I ate the entire batch over the weekend… ya not so “detoxy” of me, but hey I’m only human. And once you try these macaroons I’m pretty sure you won’t blame me. They are the perfect combination of toasty coconut and slightly sweet banana with the perfect little smidge of cinnamon.

If you’re not on the 21 Day Sugar Detox you can totally still enjoy these. For a sweeter treat, use a fully ripe banana and/or add a tablespoon of honey or other sweetener of choice.

    I have tried a couple of 21dsd “cookies” and found them all terrible. These are great. Even my husband ate three of them!

    Would love to try these but can’t eat eggs. :( Think it would work without them? Maybe add some unsweetened applesauce instead? Are the eggs for moisture or for leavening?

    Aloha, is like to try these but I’m on AIP. Do you think it would work to sub the egg with a gelatin egg? Thanks
