Gently sweet and so satisfying, these coconut macaroons are a vegan treat, flavored with rich cocoa, coconut oil and maple syrup. Find the recipe here http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/raw-macaroons.
Makes about 24 macaroons
3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl, stir together coconut, cocoa powder and salt. Add syrup, oil and vanilla and stir until well combined. Using your hands (dampened, if you like), shape mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls and transfer to a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. (Alternatively, use a small ice cream scoop to form macaroons.) Cover and refrigerate until cold and firm, about 1 hour. Macaroons will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
