Nut-free Macarons

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!


I have always wanted to try and bake french macarons, but they are almost all made with almond flour. I have a nut allergy.


I really want to try this recipe:




which uses peanut flour as a substitute for almond flour. Could I use coconut flour instead of these nut flours?


Or does anyone have a recipe that has worked for them that is nut-free?

I don't have any experience with nut-free macarons, but I have seen coconut flour that is ground as finely as needed, so it seems like it would be worth a try.

I've heard of people making them with corn flour. I'll see if I can dig up the recipe.

I had a series on nut-free macs on my site with several guests including Bravetart. Some were made with seeds...etc. All gorgeous and delicious. Very talented bunch. Here is the link to the entire series: http://www.foodwanderings.com/search/label/Macaron%20Series#.UVXHBqUTsUs This one is with coconut http://www.foodwanderings.com/2011/10/coconut-macaron-with-lime-and-white.html#.UVXHQ6UTsUs I can't recall but might be others in the series.
