These Macaroons taste decadent, yet they are packed with antioxidants! Thanks to the cacao nibs, you’ll get a dose of polyphenols, magnesium & iron. The coconut oil in these binds all the ingredients together. Coconut oil is also a healthy fat and natural energy source.I love the simplicity of this recipe and that there’s no cooking involved. This allows all the nutrients in the ingredients to stay fully intact.
Eat these as a treat or as an on-the-go energy “bar”!
1 1/2 cups finely shredded organic coconut
1/4 cup organic almond meal
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch or two of sea salt
1/2 cup melted extra virgin organic coconut oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup raw organic cacoa nibs
1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl, and all of the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
2. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, then add in the cacao nibs. Stir to combine.
To shape and portion these macaroons out, I used an ice-cream scoop. Portion them out and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Then place them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to let the coconut oil harden.
Store these macaroons in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
P.S- I saw this recipe on the website Beaming with Health, they have a ton of other great recipes!
