What?! Eggs with coconut?! Sounds crazy, right? Well, it is delicious! I found this recipe in my "Make It Paleo" cookbook. I was having an issue eating my eggs in the morning. After a little while, the flavor makes me feel ill. I don't really like eating veggies in the morning in an omelet, and I can't use cheese to spice things up. I needed a way to get my protein without having to eat a quarter pound of beef at 6 am (which I have done a lot). This recipe saved me!
~2 eggs, separated
~1/4 c. shredded, un-sweetened coconut (I buy in the bulk commodities section of HEB)
~Salt (if desired)
Preheat oven to 350. Whip whites until peaks form. Stir in the shredded coconut. Drop in mounds onto parchment paper. Create a divot in the top of the mounds and place yolks in the little hole. Bake for 10-12 minutes (until starting to get golden on top). Sprinkle with salt if desired.
Super easy, doesn't take long. I eat mine without the yolks or the salt. That's my preference. It's like eating a puffy little coconut cloud and the egg flavor won't punch you in the face! I just peel them off of the parchment and eat with my hands... no fork required!
