What do you do when life gives you three children three and under to watch for the day? Make No Bake Cocoa Macaroons, of course! The other day I was babysitting my sister’s two kids along with my daughter Elena and it was a fun but busy day. In the middle of it, I decided we needed a little treat and whipped these up.
I have been savoring a jar of Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter
and the other day I had mixed in a little cocoa powder and a dab of honey with some of the coconut butter to make a yummy spread. It was so good I thought it deserved to be made into some cookies. These cookies are delightfully rich and full of healthy coconut oil too.
Wilderness Family Naturals has a raw coconut spread that I am sure would work too (and doesn’t Tropical Traditions have something like that too?). This can be completely “raw” if desired, just use raw cocoa powder. I ran out of vanilla, but next time I will probably add a drop or two.
No Bake (Mostly Raw) Cocoa Macaroons Makes 15-18, 1/2 inch balls
- 1/2 cup of Artisana coconut butter (or raw coconut spread)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 cup of coconut flakes
2 heaping teaspoons raw honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil, gently melted
In a food processor, blend the coconut butter, cocoa, honey and gently melted coconut oil. Blend until well combined. Add the coconut flakes and blend until just combined.
Drop spoonfuls (about 1/2 inch diameter) onto a parchment paper lined plate. Place in the freezer ten minutes to firm up and serve. Keep in the refrigerator.You don’t want to miss the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. It’s on sale for only 6 days, is less than $30, and gives you over $1000 worth of healthy living resources.
