Raw Vanilla Macaroons


If you are looking for a simple and ‘good’ dessert I have just the thing. The greatest thing about vegetarian/vegan desserts is they are usually all good and you can eat them anytime, before dinner, after dinner, before breakfast…that’s the way I like desserts…

Raw Vanilla Macaroons (or Almond Joy)

  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 2 Tblsp agave nectar or honey
  • 2 Tblsp nut butter (I used Natural Peanut)
  • 1 Tblsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt

To make this recipe alittle more joyful add:

  • handful of whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (or carob chips)

Mix up the first 5 ingredients in a bowl and mold into balls and freeze.

Raw Almond Macaroons

To make Almond Joy squeeze a whole almond into the center of the coconut mixture (before freezing). Freeze. Melt chocolate in microwave bowl and dip almond coconut balls in melted chocolate. Freeze again…they can be set in fridge before serving.
