Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American, Gluten Free
Servings: 8 filled peach halves

Ingredients

  • 4 peaches
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup almond meal (or 1/4 cup more coconut)*
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice peaches in half and remove the pits.
  • Mix together the coconut, almond meal, egg whites, salt, vanilla and almond extracts. Add more coconut if the mixture seems to wet (you want the mixture to easily come together into a ball but not be too wet).
  • Use a tablespoon or small scoop to top each of the peaches with the macaroon filling.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the coconut is golden brown and the peaches are soft.
  • Serve with toasted almond ice cream or classic vanilla!

Notes

You can also use more coconut instead of almond meal.
