Maple Macaroons

Do you all know how much I love coconut? I mean, I love the taste, the smell, the texture, the many many health benefits, I even love the way it looks.


Seriously, how cute is that? I like to say it too: "co-co-nut." Fun ;)

Anyway, I'm all about simple lately and I wanted to make a macaroon that was similar to the ones I've been eating, Coco-roons. And, I wanted to make some that didn't contain egg as I am trying to be aware of how many eggs I'm eating (because I eat A LOT of eggs).

Maple Macaroons

2 cups unsweetened, organic coconut
3 tbls almond meal (I used mine leftover from homemade almond milk)
Dash of sea salt
1/3 cup + 1tbls 100% pure maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)



Method:

Combine the coconut, almond meal and sea salt. Add in the maple syrup and stir until well incorporated. Pour the coconut oil overtop and combine thoroughly so that a 'batter forms.'

It should be wet enough so that you can form the macaroon without it falling apart. If it's too dry, add a little bit more of both the coconut oil and the maple syrup.

Form the macaroons and bake on parchment paper at 350° for about 12 minutes or until the tips start to turn light brown.




Yields ~ 8-10 macaroons

Store in the refrigerator to harden and keep fresh. These are perfectly sweet and satisfying... 

Enjoy ;)
