ZESTY MACAROONS


Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian, Refined Sugar Free, Vegan

I have been making these macaroons for a few years now, inspired by a cooking class I attended. Refined sugar free and high in healthy fats, these are a guilt-free treat for your taste buds and body! You can swap the lime zest for any citrus zest or use freeze-dried fruit such as raspberries or strawberries.


Ingredients:

Macaroons

2 cups shredded coconut

½ cup ground almonds

¼ cup coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

zest of 2 limes

½ tsp vanilla extract

2–3 tsp cold water


Chocolate Dip (optional)

100g dark chocolate, melted

½ tsp coconut oil, melted

pinch of salt


Method:

• Mix the macaroon ingredients until well combined.

• Form into balls using wet hands, and place onto a tray lined with baking paper.

• Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.

• Remove from the fridge and drizzle over or dip into the melted chocolate mix.

• Place back into the fridge and allow to set for 12 hours.

• Keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Serve chilled.
