Serves: 10 macaroons

INGREDIENTS

  • ¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons almond meal
  • 1½ tablespoons coconut butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped almonds
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ tablespoon milk or non-dairy milk of your choice

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine coconut, almond meal, chopped almonds and salt in a medium bowl. Stir together.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except for milk and stir together with a spatula or your hands.
  3. If you need it, (if mixture comes together enough without it, omit) add the milk so that the dough is of a consistency that will stick together enough and hold it’s shape.
  4. Fill a tablespoon with the mixture and pack down tightly. Carefully remove the mixture using your fingers to “pop” it out of the tablespoon onto a parchment lined sheet.
  5. Keep refrigerated or stash in a cooler bag for lunches and impromptu picnics in the sun. Freeze first if you don’t have access to a cooler bag or just want to pop a few into a bag while you’re out and about.
