Raw Coconut Macaroons

I’ve been reading Kimberly Snyder’s book “Beauty Detox Foods” and absolutely adore it. One of my fave sweet treat flavors, is coconut. And these lovelies are raw, vegan & gluten free. Win-Win-Win.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp raw coconut sugar (used instead of stevia)
  • 1/2 cup raw coconut nectar
  • pinch of sea salt

 

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the coconut flakes, cacao powder, coconut sugar, sea salt, and vanilla extract.  Add the coconut nectar last and mix well until everything is well-combined.
  2. Scoop a small amount into hands and roll into shape.  This step is a bit messy as the coconut nectar is quite sticky, but that’s part of the fun of cooking!
  3. Place macaroons into the freezer for a few hours.  Sprinkle with some extra coconut flakes and serve cold.
